Main policy for undergraduate and graduate admission to Seattle University.
Please review this policy for information pertaining to the transferable nature of credits and degrees from Unaccredited and Newly Accredited Colleges, and Non-Traditional Programs.
It is the policy of the University to require that the student submit records of all previous schools attended as part of the application process prior to being admitted. Anyone admitted and enrolled for whom it is later discovered that records of attendance at a previous institution have been withheld is subject to dismissal from the University without refund of tuition and fees.
Seattle University Admissions requires the following application requirements, found in this policy, in order to thoroughly evaluate whether home school applicants have the necessary foundation of skills and academic credentials to be successful students at Seattle University.
A post-baccalaureate student is one who has completed a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution and who has been admitted to Seattle University for additional undergraduate study which is intended to culminate in a second bachelor's degree, a certificate or the fulfillment of prerequisites for a particular Seattle University degree program.
To be eligible for post-baccalaureate or graduate study, an applicant must provide evidence of the equivalent of a U.S. four-year baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution. An evaluation of the applicant's relevant system is required to determine equivalency before the file is reviewed for admission.
This allows former students returning to complete baccalaureate degree programs, whose previous academic performance at Seattle University was below standard, to resume their studies without the encumbrance of their poor grades.
