We feel that a holistic review that encompasses all aspects of your background and application is the most effective method for finding students for whom Christopher Newport is the right fit. Typically, competitive transfer applicants present at least 15 credit hours of college–level credit with an earned cumulative GPA of 3.0. We strongly encourage completion of one college-level mathematics and English course. Standardized test scores are encouraged but not required.

Here on our beautiful campus in Newport News, Virginia, you'll find boundless energy and magnificent facilities few schools can rival. There's also lots to do nearby – we're in the heart of one of the most historic and beautiful areas of the United States, just a few hours south of Washington, D.C., 45 minutes from the Virginia Beach oceanfront and 20 minutes from the storied towns of Williamsburg and Yorktown. The best way to experience Christopher Newport is to come and see for yourself! We offer campus tours on weekdays and select Saturdays throughout the year.
