StFX welcomes applications from students who wish to join the StFX community and have completed credit courses at a university or college. Courses completed at another university or college may be applied to a degree at StFX. These courses – known as transfer credits – are recognition of the academic coursework completed.
A transfer student is one who has attended a college or university since graduating from high school. Note: A student currently in high school who has completed college or university courses will be considered for admission as a high school applicant, not a transfer student, but will be eligible for transfer credits.
Students interested in transferring to StFX must meet the admissions requirements, for degrees at StFX. Please see Admissions Requirements for more information.
