Adult Degree Transfer Students

Not Sure if You Want to Transfer - or How to Go About It?

We can help.

At Seton Hill, we are happy to take a look at the academic credits you already have and let you know which will transfer to Seton Hill. (We call this a transfer credit evaluation, and it's free.)

If you plan on transferring in the future but not right away, we can also help you choose the courses at your current school that will meet requirements for a degree in your chosen field at Seton Hill. (We call this transfer counseling, and it's also free.)

Applying to Seton Hill as an Adult Degree Program Transfer Student

The Adult Degree Program is designed for adults who wish to earn and undergraduate degree while working or managing other full-time personal and professional responsibilities. Adult Degree Program students have the option to take classes on evenings or Saturdays during short eight-week-long sessions. Financial aid, employer reimbursement, preferred employer discounts and credits for prior learning are available.

If you are interested in enrolling Seton Hill's Adult Degree Program and have already earned college credits at a post-secondary institution after graduating from high school or earning a GED, then you are considered a transfer student. To apply you must provide:  

  • A completed application (apply online now for free!).
  • Official post-secondary transcripts from all education institutions attended.
  • Official high school transcript or GED.

Transcripts

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.)

Seton Hill requires official transcripts to be sent for enrollment purposes. Please send to: 



Seton Hill University

Office of Graduate & Adult Studies
1 Seton Hill Drive

Greensburg, PA 15601 



Typically colleges and high schools require your request for transcripts be in writing. Please feel free to use this Transcript Request Form if needed. 

Deadline to Apply


Seton Hill University has rolling admissions, so there is no deadline.

Transfer Credits

Once admitted into Seton Hill University, all official college transcripts will be reviewed for transfer credit. Students will receive an official credit evaluation indicating which credits will transfer into Seton Hill.

Articulation Agreements & Cooperative Programs

Seton Hill has articulation agreements (an agreement between institutions that coursework taken at one institution will transfer into the program of the other) and cooperative programs with Westmoreland County Community College and Community College of Allegheny County. We also have agreements with a variety of schools locally, nationally and abroad.  It is not a requirement that your previous institution have an agreement with Seton Hill for your credits to transfer.

GPA Requirement 


There is no minimum grade point average (GPA) for admission. However, the decision is based on the number of college level credits taken, grades earned, cumulative GPA earned, and, if needed, we will refer back to high school grades and SAT/ACT scores. 



Financial Aid 


Financial aid packages can be completed only if a student has been accepted to the university. Transfer students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) listing Seton Hill University (school code 003362) to be eligible for financial aid. To receive the maximum amount of financial aid a student should complete their FAFSA by May 1st. Visit the FAFSA website.



CLEP/DANTES - Credit for Life Experience 


Seton Hill offers a lifelong learning opportunity that grants college credits for level of knowledge acquired through various life experiences. To become eligible for these credits, students have the option of taking the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) or Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES) exam. Please contact us for more information.
