Transfer credits

Understanding the process

Transcript evaluation

A transfer student interested in determining how many credits may transfer from previous coursework and how long it may take to complete a bachelor’s degree program at Stritch may submit unofficial transcripts from previous institutions for evaluation. This unofficial review process will provide students with a good understanding of how previously earned credits may transfer into our curriculum.  

Your admissions representative is ready to help you.  Contact your admissions representative or email a copy of your transcripts from all previously attended institutions to The process typically takes up to 72 hours to complete.
