Transfer Students

Students who have attended other colleges and universities must submit those credentials that are required of all applicants: namely, a final official high school transcript. Students with 24 or more college credits will not need to submit an ACT or SAT score. In addition, they must have official transcripts sent from each college and university attended. Admission and subsequent registration may be canceled if information is found to be false or intentionally omitted.

Full credit will be given for most college level courses transferred from an institution accredited by one of the regional accreditation associations, provided the grade for each course is C (2.00) or better. Courses in which a grade below a college C is earned are not automatically transferable. No college credit will be given for home-school or correspondence course work. Canadian students please note: Ontario Academic Credits (OAC) are NOT accepted for credit.

A final Advanced Standing Evaluation will be done after all official transcripts have been received. This evaluation is subject to the approval of the student’s academic advisor. Students who register for courses without an Advanced Standing Evaluation assume total responsibility for any registration errors. In no case may a student earn credit for a course, or equivalent, for which prior credit was earned.

Transfer students must earn their final, consecutive 30 semester credit hours at Franciscan University of Steubenville. A minimum of 12 semester credit hours in upper-level courses in an academic major must be earned at Franciscan University of Steubenville. To qualify for an academic minor, transfer students must earn at least 6 semester credit hours in upper-level classes at Franciscan University of Steubenville. Requirements for academic majors and minors are listed in the Degree Programs section.
