At Seton Hall you’ll benefit from the close mentorship of faculty and a community dedicated to challenging and supporting you.
At Seton Hall you learn from doing. That’s why in addition to countless opportunities for research and scholarship, students can write for one of our three newspapers, work for our award-winning radio station, conduct research for our Market Research Center, create public relations plans for local businesses, develop lesson plans for student teaching, or work in the sports polling center conducting polls commissioned by ESPN.
We know you’ve spent valuable time and money earning your credits; that’s why we accept up to 90 transfer credits and have dedicated transfer counselors to help you make your transition to Seton Hall. Plus, we have generous financial aid and scholarship opportunities exclusively for transfer students.

“I transferred to Seton Hall from Syracuse because I wanted to be closer to NYC. And even though I was also accepted into NYU, I chose Seton Hall because it felt more caring and like home. It was a great decision; I got to be a Youth Ambassador at the UN, study abroad in Italy, and intern with the World Food Program. The quality of the faculty and the tremendous opportunities I’ve had at Seton Hall have been amazing.”
— Cara Richardson
Bridgewater, New Jersey
“I transferred to Seton Hall with almost 90 credits, and even though I only spent a year here before completing my degree, I was able to intern for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and for Piers Morgan Tonight at CNN. Now, a few weeks before I graduate,
I already have a job at CNN.”
— Paul Murphy
