Transfer Student Application

Degrees Offered

Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration (BABA)

Bachelor of Arts in Economics (BAE)

Because of the automatic 90 credits I was awarded by SU from the Transfer Associates degree at Bellevue College, I was able to pursue another degree at Albers. This policy made it possible for me to expand my education.

DTA Degree Strongly Encouraged

Students transferring from a Washington Community College are strongly encouraged to complete a Direct Transfer Agreement (DTA) Associate Degree. Completion of a DTA degree is beneficial in satisfying University Core requirements when transferring to Seattle University. We also have articulation agreements with Oregon, California, and Arizona community colleges which allows students to "package" their credits like a Washington DTA. More details about this are available on the Undergraduate Admissions website.
