Transfer: Students who transfer to St. Ambrose with an A.A. or A.S. degree from a college of EICCD will be admitted to SAU with junior status.

SAU also has a Health/Physical Education graduation requirement which can be met by completing PEH:109 Personal Wellness. Students who do not complete an associate degree prior to transfer will have their courses reviewed and accepted on a course-by-course basis. Click here for Course Equivalencies.
