St. Catherine University operates on a rolling admission basis, which means that applications are processed as they are received. Transfer applicants are considered on the basis of previous course work completed at a regionally accredited college or university. Students will be notified of the admission decision within three weeks after the application file is complete and has been evaluated by the Admission Committee.  

To be considered for admission, transfer applicants must send the following to the Office of Admission:

  • A completed application form
  • Official high school transcripts demonstrating completion of a high school diploma, if students have not successfully completed at least 12 college credits. 
  • Official transcripts mailed directly from every college or university attended (whether or not credits were earned).
  • The General Education Development Test (GED), including scores, is required for students who did not graduate from high school. 
  • Applicants who have completed any portion of their education outside the United States should consult with their admission counselor for additional instructions.
  • If the applicant's first language is not English, the applicant will be required to submit the results of either the Michigan English Language Assessment Battery Test (MELAB), Duolingo, the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) or St. Catherine University's English Language Test.

  • If the previous academic record indicates past difficulty, the student may be asked to provide additional information or to participate in a personal interview.
