CT Transfer Guarantee

Finish what you started at USJ

The University of Saint Joseph is proud to be a part of the Connecticut Transfer Guarantee (CT Guarantee), a statewide effort to establish systematic transfer pathways between Connecticut’s community colleges and four-year independent institutions. The Connecticut Guarantee mitigates credit loss and increases student success by ensuring admission into participating independent colleges for associate degree-holding students. Students who participate in the Connecticut Guarantee and choose to enroll at USJ in an eligible program will ensure that they are able to graduate in as few as two years.

The Connecticut Guarantee ensures admission to USJ for students with an associate degree from a Connecticut Community College and who have earned a minimum GPA of 2.5. At the core of the Connecticut Guarantee is an unwavering commitment to equity, opportunity, and access for all students in higher education.
