Transfer Students

USJ has a long tradition of working closely with transfer students.

We want to ensure you make the best use of your previous experience in order to help you achieve your long-term goals. That’s why all students are assigned an advisor who meets with you regularly to develop your individual plan of study.

  • Students who arrive at USJ with less than 45 credits, are Nursing majors (first bachelor’s degree), or have not yet chosen a major are assigned to a professional advisor in the Academic Advisement Center until they are prepared to move on to their major departments.
  • Students who transfer with 45 credits or more and all second-degree candidates are assigned a faculty advisor in their major departments.

If you are interested in taking a few courses before applying or would like to speak with an academic advisor, see the “Meet the Advising Staff” section below to find the appropriate contact person.
