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