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 with 25 credits or more.
  • High school transcript if transferring with 25 credits. 
  • SAT/ACT scores if transferring with 25 credits.


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:

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.
