Admission Requirements - Saturday Scholars® Program

Department of Behavioral Health Counseling

For Transfer Students

Our transfer policies are specifically designed to accommodate students applying from other colleges. While entering students are not required to have completed an associate's degree, we strongly recommended that applicants have completed most, if not all, of the following 60 college-level semester credits, or 90 quarter-term credits, before entering our program.

(Please note: This program is offered in quarter credits, not semester credits. One semester credit is equal to 1.5 quarter credits; therefore, a bachelor's degree worth 120 semester credits is equal to 180 quarter credits.)
