Transfer Applicants: Getting to Where You Belong

Did you know that about one out of every three college students transfers? In college, as in life, not every first choice turns out to be the best one. 

For more students than you might imagine, the school they first choose turns out not to be the right fit after all. Some of those students throw up their hands and give up on college. But you’re taking a bolder step. You’ve decided to seek a new path to your college degree.

At St. Norbert, we welcome students like you, with the courage and commitment to make a change when one is necessary. We’ll do all we can to help you travel your new path successfully.

What You Need to Know About Transferring

Your credits are transferable
Your credits from another college – whether it’s a two-year, four-year, technical or community college – will most likely transfer to SNC. Once you apply, we’ll talk with you about credit transfers.

You can qualify for scholarships
We offer generous scholarships specifically for transfers based on your academic performance. (By the way, if you’re applying for second semester of your freshman year and we previously offered you a scholarship, we’ll honor that one.)

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

You’ll room with your peers
When we assign you to housing, we’ll match you up with students in your own class year – freshmen with freshmen, sophomores with sophomores, etc.

You can play sports
If you maintain a 2.0 GPA, you can participate in varsity sports at St. Norbert (provided you can make the team, of course). There are a lot of other things you can do here, too: We have more than 90 student organizations, and if you think we need one more, we’ll make it easy for you to start it.

You can study what you want
We have 30 different majors, and 40+ programs of study. If you don’t find a major you like, you can even create your own. Whatever field you choose, keep in mind you’ll be learning in small classes from professors who love to teach.

You can graduate on time
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.

You’ll be in good company
About one-third of all college students transfer at some point. And for many of them, it’s a springboard to great things. Steven Spielberg, Jackie Robinson and seven U.S. presidents were transfer students; they seem to have done all right for themselves.

When You’re Ready to Apply
We make applying easy, too. We just ask you to submit the following: 
  • St. Norbert College application
  • Official college transcripts from all post-secondary institutions attended
  • Final high school transcript
  • ACT or SAT scores (if you’re returning to school after several years, or you’ve applied to St. Norbert in the past, please contact your admission counselor about whether to submit ACT/SAT scores)
  • Pay Us a Visit!

If you haven’t been to campus before, or even if you have, we would love to show you around the place and remind you why SNC is a college like no other.

We strongly recommend you apply before you visit. That way, an admission counselor can have a detailed discussion with you about credit transfers, etc. Schedule your visit online.
