Transferring To SJC Brooklyn

Transferring To SJC Brooklyn

The St. Joseph’s College community is eager to welcome transfer students to the Brooklyn Campus (SJC Brooklyn).

We’re here to assist you at each step and provide a seamless a stress-free transition. Our transfer admissions counselors are available to meet with you to discuss academic programs of interest, review the application process and provide preliminary information on transfer credits from previous institutions.

Transfer Credits

We encourage you to take advantage of our Online Transfer Evaluation System, where you can easily access preliminary information about how your courses will transfer to SJC Brooklyn.

If you do not see your institution or a particular class — don’t worry! The Office of Admissions regularly evaluates new courses, so please feel free to email us your courses. We will be happy to evaluate them and add the new equivalencies to our Online Transfer Evaluation System.

Transfer Credit Policy

SJC Brooklyn will accept up to 64 credits from a regionally accredited two-year school, and up to 90 credits from a regionally accredited four-year school. SJC will accept comparable courses in which a grade of C- or higher was earned. However, some courses may require a higher grade be achieved in order to satisfy certain major requirements. To fulfill the SJC residency requirement, all students must complete a minimum of 30 credits* at St. Joseph’s College to satisfy the College’s residency requirement.

Students who transfer to one of SJC’s professional studies programs may be eligible to receive additional transfer credit and may also be considered for prior experiential learning credit.

*Certain majors may require a minimum of 32 credits be completed at St. Joseph’s College. 

Transfer Admissions Process

If you have enrolled in college courses at another institution, after graduating from high school, then you are considered a transfer student. Candidates applying for transfer admission should complete the SJC Online Application or the Common Application and submit the following:

  • Official transcripts from all institutions attended after high school graduation
  • If you have completed less than 24 college credits at a regionally accredited college or university or graduated high school less than one year ago, you must also submit your final high school transcript.

Please note: The traditional four-year nursing program has reached capacity and is no longer accepting new applications for fall 2017. All in-progress applications for fall 2017 will be evaluated and considered for a place on the program’s waiting list. Students who have been admitted, but have not deposited by the deadline stated in their letter of admission, will be considered on a space-available basis. SJC Brooklyn is still considering applicants for admission to the RN to BSN program, which is for individuals who currently hold a NYS RN license and wish to pursue a BSN.
