Transfer Profile

Transfer-friendly campus 

Saint Joseph’s has been named to the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Roll, commended for transfer excellence. SJU offers transfer student housing and a transfer-centric orientation program, and accepts up to 60 credits from other accredited institutions to count toward your bachelor’s degree.

Academic prestige
Ranked #11 in its category of Regional Universities—North among “America’s Best Colleges” by U.S. News & World Report, the University’s education has no boundaries—only possibilities. With 50 majors and minors, AACSB International accreditation, and the country’s most prestigious undergraduate honors organization (Phi Beta Kappa), our students learn to think critically and strive relentlessly to give their absolute best.

Faculty and student recognition
One hundred percent of our distinguished faculty hold the highest attainable degree in their field. Between the College of Arts and Sciences and the Erivan K. Haub School of Business, students learn from faculty mentors as Summer Scholars, take state-of-the-art classes in the Wall Street Training Room, and work as peer mentors in the Kinney Center for Autism Education. Students are consistently recognized as Fulbright Scholars for their academic achievements. Known as scholars, volunteers, leaders, athletes, and activists, students spend their semester breaks volunteering all over the nation and around the globe.
