Transfer Student Application Process

If you are applying to Saint Vincent College as a transfer student, your academic achievement and personal history at the post-secondary schools you've attended will be of primary importance to us. However, we'll also need to receive your secondary school record as background information for academic counseling.

A transfer counselor in the Office of Admission and Financial Aid will evaluate your transcripts at your request - even before you apply.
