Adult Degree Admission Requirements
To apply to Seton Hill as an Adult Degree Program student, you will need to provide us with:
- A completed application form
- Apply online for free, OR
- Contact the Office of Graduate and Adult Studies to have a paper application sent to you
- Official copy of your high school transcript or GED
- Official transcripts for all colleges and universities attended
Seton Hill University has rolling admissions, which means:
- There is no application deadline
- We'll respond to you with an admission decision shortly after you've submitted your application and materials
Official transcripts are those sent directly from an educational institution to the university in a sealed envelope or through a secure online service. (Other types of transcripts, such as those issued directly to a student, are not considered "official" for enrollment purposes.)
You can transfer up to 90 credits to Seton Hill. To earn a Seton Hill degree:
- One half of the credits in your major must be taken at Seton Hill
- Your final 30 credits must be taken at Seton Hill
Free Credit Evaluations & Transfer Counseling Before You Apply
We will be happy to take a look at the academic credits you've already earned and give you an unofficial estimate of what will transfer. If you're currently enrolled and plan to transfer in the future, we can help you choose the courses at your current school that will have the best chance of being accepted at Seton Hill.
Official Credit Evaluation
Once admitted into Seton Hill University you will receive an official credit evaluation indicating which credits will transfer into Seton Hill.
Transfer Agreements with Other Colleges & Schools
Seton Hill has articulation agreements (an agreement between institutions that coursework taken at one institution will transfer into the program of the other) with a variety of schools, including:
- Westmoreland County Community College
- Community College of Allegheny County
- South Hills School of Business & Technology
It is not a requirement that your previous institution have an agreement with Seton Hill for your credits to transfer.
There is no minimum grade point average (GPA) for admission. Admission decisions are based on the number of college-level credits taken, grades earned, and cumulative GPA. If needed, we will refer back to high school grades and SAT/ACT scores.
At Seton Hill, we keep our costs low, and we'll work with you to create an aid package to help with any outstanding need.
