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

Seton Hill Can Help with Free Credit Evaluations & Transfer Counseling Before You Apply

We'll be 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.)

To request a free transfer credit evaluation, select this option on our request for information form.

Request Your Evaluation

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. Just send us a email to admit@setonhill.edu.)

Applying to Seton Hill as an Undergraduate Transfer Student

An undergraduate transfer student is anyone applying to Seton Hill University who has earned college credits at a post-secondary institution after graduating from high school or earning a GED. As an undergraduate student, you'll be taking most of your courses during the day in the traditional semester format. (Click here if you are looking for information on transferring into Seton Hill's Adult Degree Program.)

To apply to transfer to Seton Hill, please provide:

  • A completed application (apply online now for free!)
  • Official college transcripts from all colleges/universities attended.
  • Proof of high school graduation if transferring in more than 25 credits.
  • High school transcript if transferring in less than 25 credits. 
  • SAT/ACT scores if transferring in less than 25 credits.

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:

Special Admission Requirements for Arts Majors

Deadline to Apply


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

Transfer Credits

Once you're admitted into Seton Hill University, you will receive an official credit evaluation indicating which credits will transfer into Seton Hill. Credit will only be given for courses in you've earned a C- or better. 

(We can help you figure out which credits will transfer before you apply - see top of page.) There is no limit to how many credits you can transfer. However, you must complete a minimum of 48 Seton Hill credits to be considered for a baccalaureate degree from the University. Also, at least half of your major courses, and the last 30 credits must be taken at Seton Hill. If you select a minor, at least one half of the required credits for the minor must be taken at 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.
