Transfer Profile

A home for the mind, the heart, and the spirit

Academic excellence
Seton Hall is a place where leaders learn. This is evident in almost three dozen student and alumni national scholars and fellows—including 18 prestigious Fulbright Scholars since 2009, as well as Rhodes, Udall, Pickering and Critical Language, and Truman Scholars—and more than 100,000 alumni who are now successful CEOs, judges, doctors, principals, CFOs, journalists, diplomats, and more. As one of the nation’s leading Catholic universities, Seton Hall provides rigorous academic programs that are highly ranked by The Princeton Review, U.S.News & World Report, and Bloomberg Businessweek

Personal attention
Seton Hall offers all the advantages of a large research university—national reputation; challenging academic programs; notable alumni; state-of-the-art facilities; renowned faculty; and extensive opportunities for internships, research, and scholarship—with all of the benefits of a small, supportive, and nurturing environment. A 14:1 student-faculty ratio and average class size of 21 means faculty know more than just your name. At Seton Hall you’re part of a community dedicated to you and committed to providing a full and well-rounded experience inside the classroom—and beyond.

Distinguished faculty
Seton Hall’s accomplished faculty—who include Fulbright Scholars, prominent researchers, authors, artists, filmmakers, former school superintendents and principals, leaders in nursing, former ambassadors, analysts, and lawmakers—have graduated from some of the nation’s leading institutions, including Seton Hall, Harvard, Columbia, Yale, Princeton, and Dartmouth. They use their experiences to broaden the minds and perspectives of our students.

Transfer advantage
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. 

Perfect location
Nestled in the suburban village of South Orange, New Jersey, Seton Hall provides the safe, quaint charm of a small town and the hustle and bustle of New York City life only 30 minutes away. Just hop on the train in the center of town and the worlds of entertainment, art, publishing, finance, and fashion; the United Nations; and thousands of major corporations are at your doorstep. This translates to a career edge and unprecedented job opportunities, not to mention lots of fun and excitement.

Career advantage
Seton Hall offers more than 17,000 internship opportunities, and more than 81% of students have an internship—or two—on their résumé before graduation. In fact, Seton Hall is ranked #4 in the nation for providing internship opportunities. Seton Hall students have an employment rate almost 20% higher than the national average. A dedicated and mentoring 12-member career counseling staff begins working with you freshman year, identifying the best careers for you, providing workshops, developing your résumé, and helping you network. Their national reputation and stellar academic programs draw over 550 employers to campus each year just to recruit Seton Hall graduates.

“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.”

— Carla 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.”
