Transfer Credit

At Mount St. Joseph University, we make transferring as easy as possible! The Mount typically accepts college-level coursework as transfer credit from regionally-accredited institutions. Check out our complete set of transfer guidelines for specific transfer policies and procedures. Once you're admitted to the University, we'll conduct an official transcript evaluation. During this process, we determine how previous college credit will transfer.

You can request a free, unofficial transcript evaluation before applying. Simply contact the Office of Admission and submit your transcript. Our analysts will tentatively apply your credits to our curriculum and help determine how many credits you will need to graduate from the Mount!
