A transfer student is anyone who wants to bring in at least 12 credits earned at other universities or colleges (not while in high school). You may also want to check out our Dual Admission Program that offers numerous benefits and a $1,000 renewable scholarship.
Every year St. Ambrose University welcomes approximately 350 students who transfer to our university looking for more personal attention and respected programs. With more than 60 academic programs, Ambrose can tailor your education to match your career goals and interests.
Although transfer students come here from many different backgrounds – from colleges in Iowa and around the U.S., community colleges, and large universities – they quickly find themselves right at home. Our staff is dedicated to making your transition as smooth as possible, beginning with an afternoon orientation.
Non-traditional students who are interested in adult-oriented, evening, weekend, or online courses may be best served by the Accelerated Programs for Adults. The program's intensive academic programs center on non-traditional students and are delivered through innovative instruction.
Students entering the Accelerated Program need to have at least three years of work experience and should have previously completed 12 or more college credits, with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0.
