Interviews are not required for admission consideration and students not able to interview will not be at a disadvantage during the admission process.

will transfer into Saint Joseph's, take a tour of our beautiful 125-acre campus, and learn about our transfer-friendly student experience.
You are encouraged to schedule an individual appointment with a counselor to discuss undergraduate programs, application/enrollment requirements, and the transfer credit process. Appointments are available in person and virtually.
