USJ recognizes academic credit that has been awarded to students at other regionally accredited higher education institutions, as long as courses are of the general nature of courses offered at the University. Generally, this credit will be applied toward the minimum semester credit hours required for graduation. Credits taken elsewhere that the student wishes to apply toward a major area of study must be approved by the appropriate departmental faculty.
Only credits of C- or better are accepted in transfer (for students transferring to the Department of Nursing, grades in science courses must be B- or better). USJ does not grant transfer credit for “Credit by Examination” completed at other colleges. Also, USJ does not usually accept P grades, unless they are proven to be worth C or better.

Notification of admission is made on a rolling basis.
