Transfer Admission

Where Do Students Transfer From?

Every semester, students transfer to Saint Xavier from both community college and other four year colleges. Saint Xavier accepts up to 70 semester credit hours (105 quarter credit hours) from community colleges in transfer and up to a total of 90 semester credit hours (135 quarter credit hours) in transfer from four-year schools. Students who have attended both a community college and four-year school can transfer in a maximum of 90 credit hours. Major requirements, residency requirements and other specific requirements will affect how many credits are required to complete a degree at Saint Xavier.

Transfer student are encouraged to see if transferable community college courses have been published on the transfer equivalency course lists, a resource that SXU began to build on our public website. If your previous college is not yet published, check the website to expedite an evaluation of transfer credit. Contact us at any time at 844-GOTO-SXU (844-468-6798) or at
