Admission Presentation & Campus Tour
Come learn about SJU through a presentation by an admissions counselor and a guided campus tour. Featured topics: Student and Campus life at SJU and the Admissions Process. For all dates and times:
Transfer Decision Days
Meet one-on-one with a transfer counselor to discuss the admission, financial aid, and the transfer credit evaluation process. Come see what life can be like for you if you continue your degree at Saint Joseph's. Students must bring their college transcript(s) to receive a preliminary credit evaluation and an on-the-spot transfer decision. Fall Decision Day dates will be announced by late August.
Transfer Information Sessions
Transfer information sessions are small question and answer sessions designed for students transferring from another college or university. You and your family are encouraged to visit to meet with an admissions counselor to discuss transferring credits, choosing a major, and learning more about life on Hawk Hill. Choose from multiple dates to visit. (Transfer students are also welcome to attend an SJU View Open House event).
Schools or organizations wishing to bring groups of 10 or more high school aged students are welcome to schedule a visit on a Tuesday or Thursday. The visits are 90 minutes, take place at 11:00 AM-12:30PM, and will consist of a Discover SJU presentation and a campus tour. We ask that requests are made at least three weeks in advance of your planned visit day.
Ask – A – Counselor
Available Monday through Friday upon request. While we do not require an interview as part of our admissions process, these "one-on-one" appointments are available should you have detailed questions about the admissions process that would not typically be addressed in a presentation. Please call 610-660-1300 for an appointment.
Alumni interviews are available to high school seniors who are interested in applying to Saint Joseph’s University. In the event that you are unable to meet with your admission counselor or visit campus due to distance, we offer the opportunity to meet with Saint Joseph’s alumni in your area for an optional interview. These interviews will be held at off-campus locations based upon the availability of our alumni.
We love having high school counselors, independent counselors, and community-based organization counselors that work with college bound students on campus. Visit our Counselor Page to find information and events specifically for school counselors.
