  • Transferring Credits

    Transfer in Your Previous College Credits

    At St. Kate's College for Adults, we'll work with you to make the most of your previous college experience. You may be closer than you think to your St. Kate's degree.

    Want to know where you stand? Send us copies of your academic transcripts — your admission counselor will get to work on a preliminary transfer evaluation. We'll show you how your previous college courses will transfer into St. Kate's, and get you started on a plan for finishing your associate or bachelor's degree.

    And, after you enroll, we'll work with you to get you credit for experience outside the classroom. You may have valuable knowledge you've gained on the job, in the military, during volunteer experiences, through non-credit continuing education and more. Through a guided process of reflection and assessment, our Credit for Prior and Alternative Learning program may help you turn your experiences into college credit.

    Request a free transfer credit evaluation by calling 651.690.7800.
