First Year Transfer Credit Center
If you have taken PSEO or CITS (College In The Schools) classes through accredited institutions, your credits may transfer to CSS. However, we need to do an official transcript evaluation in order to see exactly which courses they will "waive" here at St. Scholastica. Use the tools below to find out if your credits will transfer.
Find out if a course will transfer, and if it completes a general education requirement.
***Note: Even if you have done a lot of PSEO work you are still considered a first-year student, but you will have advanced standing. You will qualify for any and all freshman-level scholarships.
