All college-level course credits comparable to Saint Mary's offerings (100 level or higher) will transfer as long as the student receives at least a "C" grade in the course. Students need a minimum 2.0/4.0 college GPA to be considered for transfer to SMU.
Saint Mary's University will accept the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum for students who have earned at least a "C" or higher in each course within that curriculum. In addition, students must complete the following requirements of the SMU general education program: two Faith Traditions courses to fulfill the Content Areas and the junior/senior sequence of the Lasallian Core Traditions Program.
CLEP and Advanced Placement credits are accepted. Scores must be submitted to the Registrar's Office for evaluation. Saint Mary's also offers a Credit for Life Experience program for non-traditional students.
Students must submit an application for admission. Applications may be submitted online or using our print version, along with official transcript(s) from previously attended colleges or universities.
Transcripts will be evaluated by the Registrar, and students will receive an evaluation form detailing the transfer of previously earned college credits. The following articulation information is for community colleges in Minnesota only. Credits earned at other institutions will be evaluated on an individual basis.
