Special Admission

(Admission of degreed students, nondegree-seeking students, men, and auditors)

Applicants who have a bachelor's degree and are seeking a second degree must submit an application, $25 application fee (waived for St. Catherine alumnae) and official transcripts from each post-secondary educational institution attended. Students seeking a second bachelor's degree should refer to the Core Curriculum and Graduation Requirements sections of this catalog for details about requirements for graduation.

Nondegree-seeking students include students who have or have not completed a degree but wish to take courses for personal enrichment or career enhancement. Nondegree-seeking students must submit an application, $25 application fee and an unofficial transcript from the last institution attended. Nondegree-seeking students who wish to change their status to degree-seeking must submit official transcripts from all institutions attended to the Office of Admission. Admission as a nondegree-seeking student is not a guarantee of admission as a degree-seeking student. Individuals enrolled in the associate program may take no more than 12 credits as a nondegree-seeking student. 

Students taking courses required for admission to a program may apply as prerequisite-to-program students. Prerequisite-to-program students must submit an application, $25 application fee and an unofficial transcript from the last institution attended. Prerequisite-to-program students who wish to change their status to degree-seeking must submit official transcripts from all institutions attended to the Office of Admission. Admission as a prerequisite-to-program student is not a guarantee of admission as a degree-seeking student.

As a primarily undergraduate institution dedicated to educating women, St. Catherine University's College for Women, grants bachelor's degrees to women only. Men may apply to certificate or degree programs in the College for Adults and the Graduate College.

Students wishing to audit course work should contact the Registrar's Office.
