How to Apply for Admission

We will work with you to develop a plan that serves your needs, taking into consideration the fact that you have been to an institution in the past. Your past experiences are significant because they led you here.

    Students may receive transfer credits for courses similar to those offered at Albertus Magnus College provided that:

    • The courses are from a regionally accredited institution.
    • The courses were completed with a minimum grade of 2.0 (C) or its equivalent.
    • The courses were completed with a Pass grade (P) that can be documented as being equivalent to a 2.0 or better.

    Undergraduate applicants must have official transcripts for all previously attended colleges or universities sent to the Office of Admission (Day Program) and the Division of Professional and Graduate Studies (Evening Program) as well as high school credentials*.

    • If a student has earned an associate’s degree that is acceptable for full credit towards a bachelor’s degree the student needs to submit an official transcript indicating degree completion and the date of graduation as well as official transcripts from any other attended colleges or universities.
    • If a student has earned an associate’s degree, but it is not acceptable for full credit towards a bachelor’s degree the student needs to submit official transcripts from all previously attended colleges and universities and minimally a copy of their high school diploma though the high school transcript is preferred.
    • Any student transferring to Albertus Magnus College who has not earned an associate’s degree regardless of the amount of incoming transfer credits is required to submit official transcripts from all previously attended colleges and universities and their official high school transcript.
    • Students enrolled in the Day Program who successfully completed three years of the same foreign language at the high school level can earn a waiver. An official high school transcript is required.

    Students can be provisionally accepted to the college if all official college and university transcripts are received pending receipt of the necessary high school diploma or official high school transcript. Students accepted provisionally pending high school credentials can begin the process of applying for Financial Aid, however, they cannot register for classes until all required academic documentation is received. Please review the Modular Financial Aid Readiness Report – Registrar’s Office column to determine the student’s eligibility to register for classes.

    After students are matriculated the Registrar’s Office will evaluate their transcripts to determine which courses may transfer and whether transferrable courses may be applied toward required or elective courses in the student’s program of study. Students should meet with their academic advisor to review the transfer evaluation.

    A maximum of 39 credits is transferrable toward an associate’s degree from a regionally accredited institution. A maximum of 64 credits from a regionally accredited two-year or community college and a maximum of 90 credits from a regionally accredited four-year college or university is transferable toward a bachelor’s degree.
