Saint Louis University

Most of our students at SPS transfer credits from another institution. We welcome up to 64 transfer credit hours from community colleges and up to 90 transfer credit hours from four-year accredited institutions. See our transfer credit policy for additional guidelines.

In addition, a balanced AA or AS degree may be accepted in lieu of SPS's core requirements, with the exception of the Moral and Ethical Development courses. If you've obtained an associate's degree, learn more about our associate's to bachelor's program.

Other transfer options include the American Council on Education (ACE) and DSST, which could allow you to transfer up to 30 credit hours.

Previous college coursework and transfer credits will be evaluated on a case by case basis to give students the best opportunity to succeed in their program of choice.
