Transfer Student Admission
If you are considering transferring to Houston Baptist University, you are in good company. Each year, transfer students come for many reasons: the quality of our academic programs, our generous transfer merit awards, our small class sizes and low student-to-faculty ratio, and the welcoming Christian environment.
We have just added pages specifically for Lone Star and San Jac students, and a page for Houston Community College students is coming soon. See the HBU Transfer Guide (PDF) for information applicable to all transfer students.
