Seattle University grants the maximum credit possible to meet degree requirements for courses taken at other accredited institutions. An official evaluation of transfer coursework will be provided upon admission to SU. Acceptable transfer credits are applied to degree requirements consistent with university policies. Most transfers from two-year colleges who, during their first two years, follow a parallel program of study to their intended Seattle University major, enter as juniors and can complete degrees with two additional years of coursework
