Registration at Other Colleges and Universities - Transferring Courses to St. Catherine University

Students working toward a degree at St. Catherine University who plan to register for courses at other colleges and universities are advised to consult TES (Transfer Evaluation System) to determine how the course will be evaluated for transfer.

The Request for Transfer Course Pre-approval form is available online from the Office of the Registrar Forms page.
