Transfer Credits from Regionally Accredited Colleges and Universities
The registrar administers the credit evaluation process for transfer purposes. Generally, college-level course work from regionally accredited institutions of higher education will be considered for transfer toward the St. Catherine University degree. To be accepted, transfer course work must be college level, not vocational-technical, must apply to the University's program requirements, and must carry a grade of C- or better. Credits will be transferred (after conversion to semester credits when necessary) for all approved course work and will be included in the cumulative earned credit hours and cumulative grade point average at St. Catherine University. In order for courses to be counted as equivalent to St. Catherine courses, the equivalency must be approved by the appropriate department chair or program director.
