Transfer Agreements

Transfer agreements are formal agreements between higher education institutions, frequently between two- and four-year institutions, establishing the seamless transfer of courses and credits. Saint Joseph's College maintains agreements with other accredited institutions allowing for the acceptance of previously earned credits.
