Our Transfer Policy

Your Credits Are Welcome Here

The Block Transfer policy awards credit toward completion of Saint Joseph’s University's General Education Program (GEP), major courses and elective credits. With this policy, transfer students with an associate's degree can focus on their chosen major of study while going in-depth in a particular field. This transfer policy also offers preparation for an effective career or for graduate study in your chosen field. Students with an associate's degree will transfer in 60 credits and, with the addition of three specific classes at Saint Joseph's, will complete their General Education Program, allowing them to potentially graduate in two years.
