Applying to SNC as a transfer student

We’re thrilled that you’re considering St. Norbert College as the next step in your college experience. No matter what led you to SNC, we’re ready to welcome you into our community and make you feel at home.

Why transfer to SNC?

This is this big one as a transfer student, isn’t it? If you’re wary of going through the whole “new kid” thing again, that’s understandable. But know this: SNC is a friendly, welcoming place. Students look out for one another. They’re kind. You’ll thrive here in De Pere, from Day One.

When we assign you to housing, we’ll match you up with students in your own class year – first-year students with other first-years, sophomores with sophomores, etc.

We have more than 30 different majors and more than 80 programs of study. If you don’t find a major you like, you can even create your own. Whatever degree program you choose, keep in mind you’ll be learning in small classes from professors who love to teach.

We have roughly 100 student clubs and organizations, spanning the gamut from academic to service to recreation to diversity organizations. If you’d like to start a new one, we’ll make it easy!

As for athletics, SNC is a Division III college with 23 varsity teams, so if you maintain at least a 2.0 GPA, you’re eligible to participate.

If you are a little bit competitive, we also offer a popular intramural sports program — nearly 800 students participated last year.

Depending on where you are in terms of credits earned and remaining, there’s a good chance you can stay on track for a timely graduation. We’ll work with you to make it happen; we’re committed to helping you manage both the time and cost of college.

We offer merit scholarships for transfer students, based on academic performance. (By the way, if you’re applying for the second semester of your first year, we will honor any scholarship we may have previously offered you.) In addition, you may qualify for need-based aid.

You can apply for scholarships, or just find out more about your financial aid options on our page geared toward financial aid for transfer students.

Admission counselors

Explore our campus

If you haven’t toured our campus in De Pere, Wis. before, or if you’re a returning visitor, we’d love to show you around and share why SNC is a college like no other. We strongly recommend that you apply before you visit. That way, an admission counselor can have a detailed discussion with you about how you can achieve your goals with an SNC degree.

How to apply for admission

Applying is easy for transfer students! SNC has rolling admissions, so you can apply at any point during the academic year.

First, submit the SNC application.

Then, we’ll need a copy of your high school transcript, as well as official college transcripts from all of the post-secondary institutions that you’ve attended. Contact the schools and ask them to send your transcripts to us — they’ll know what to do.

After we receive all of your information, we’ll process your application and do a preliminary review of your transcripts. We try not to keep you waiting, so you should hear from us within a few weeks.

You’ll receive an unofficial credit evaluation upon admission to SNC. After you’re accepted, we’ll work with you to evaluate your transferable courses and make sure you get the credits that you deserve.
