Kettering Built - From the Start, or For the Finish

The Kettering Built Formula

It’s rigorous classwork from respected professors. Hands-on academic and lab experiences. Unique, cooperative, real-world employment opportunities. It’s what comes from a heritage of success and a culture of excellence. It’s an education that will prepare you to make a lasting impact on the world. Best of all, the Kettering Built Formula is possible for every Kettering University student, no matter how long they attend. For transfer students, it doesn’t matter where you started college, or how your journey has led you here. If you’re ready now, see how your next steps can transfer your credits and transform your future.

Qualify. Apply. Connect. 

A typical transfer student has between 24-30 credit hours, including Algebra (with Trigonometry) or Pre-Calculus; two semesters of lab science (one must be Physics or Chemistry); with at least a 3.0 GPA. Apply anytime for free using the Kettering application or CommonApp. Remember to apply at least three months prior to your desired start date. 

  • Have your college transcripts sent to the Admissions Office. 
  • Students with less than 24 college credits must also submit high school transcripts and standardized test scores. 
  • If you are Phi Theta Kappa, submit a copy of your membership certificate. 
  • Update your FAFSA profile to include the Kettering University code, 002262.

Ready now?

We admit transfer students on a rolling basis at the start of any of our four terms (January, April, July, or October). We recommend applying at least three months prior to your desired start date.

Up to 72 credits of courses with an earned grade of “C” or better will be considered, provided they have been evaluated for transferability. To determine what courses will transfer to Kettering University, use our Transfer Course Equivalency tool (TCE). Enter all your college courses and grades (for classes you are currently taking, enter “C” or better). The results will show you what should transfer and what courses would still be required to meet Kettering University graduation requirements.

Maybe you’re ready to transfer from your current school now. Maybe you’re charting a course for a transfer after some preliminary coursework elsewhere. No matter when you plan to arrive at Kettering, you’ll find help, direction, and personal support throughout your journey.
