Transfer Student Admission Guidelines
We enroll transfer students in both the fall and spring semesters. Transfer
students should demonstrate a strong record of success in post-secondary
Saint Joseph's accepts freshman applications
through the Common App. To apply for the fall semester, begin your Common
App, or add Saint Joseph's to your list of "My Colleges." Saint Joseph's accepts applications on a rolling
basis, with the exception of Nursing, and our application has no fee to apply.
Send your official high school transcript to the
admissions office. If you have taken any college courses, please send official
transcripts to the admissions office as well.
Have a college advisor or professor write a letter
If that's not available we'll accept a work supervisor or religious leader.
Credit towards graduation
from Saint Joseph's College is granted for courses taken at accredited
institutions with a grade of 2.0 or above on a 4.0 scale, if those courses
are deemed both comparable to a course at the College and relevant to the
student's proposed program of study at the College. Other appropriate
college level work with a grade of 2.0 or better will be transferred to
the Saint Joseph's College transcript, but they will not count toward a
degree program at the College.
Credit for course work taken
at non-accredited institutions may be granted on a provisional basis.
Transfer credit is awarded by the Registrar in collaboration with
individual academic departments. Transfer applicants will receive an
official evaluation of their post-secondary course work after acceptance
to a degree program. Students must complete a minimum of 32 credits at
Saint Joseph's College in order to meet degree requirements.
All questions regarding the
transfer credit and evaluation process can be directed to Kevin Paquette,
Director of Academic Records, at 207-893-7797.
