Advanced Standing for Transfer Students
A candidate for admission to a degree or certificate program with transfer credit from another college must request an official transcript(s) from each college or university previously attended. Only grades of C or better will be transferred. A maximum of 75 credits (25 courses) may be transferred to the baccalaureate degree in the CPLS. Students in a baccalaureate degree program are required to take a minimum of fifteen courses in the CPLS, including at least four upper division courses in their major. The CPLS has developed articulation agreements with many local community colleges to facilitate the transfer process. Students may transfer up to ten courses towards an Associate Degree. Ten courses must be completed at Saint Joseph’s University. Business majors must take at least half of their Business core/concentration courses at Saint Joseph’s University. Some business courses may need to be reviewed by specific academic departments for evaluation of transfer credit.
International students must provide official transcript(s) from each high school and university previously attended, translated into English, and a course-by-course evaluation from an approved international credential evaluation service must be submitted. Please see the section on International Students for further information.
