Admissions Requirements and Checklist

Pencil Sharpener

1. Preparation

  • B.A./B.S. degree from an accredited college or university
  • GPA of at least 2.8

Note: Meeting minimum entrance requirements does not guarantee admission.

A returning graduate student who has been granted admission into a program, enrolls in the program and then stops-out for more than 12 months must reapply to the program by the program application deadline date and meet all admission requirements. Our goal is to make this process smooth and easy for your return to St. Scholastica.

Apply for readmission

To return to the same graduate program at St. Scholastica, a returning student must apply for readmission to the College.

  • Click on Graduate Application
  • Log in with your email address, or Create a New Account
  • Be sure to answer “Yes” to the questions “Are you a returning student?” and “Are you returning to the same graduate program?”, and this will cause the application to skip any essay or recommendation requirements.
  • If you are returning to the college but applying to a different program, please consult with your admissions counselor to determine what, if any, supplemental application materials will be required.
  • There is no fee for applying for readmission.

Taken classes elsewhere? We'll need transcripts.

If a returning student has taken courses through other colleges during their absence from St. Scholastica, official transcripts from those colleges may be required if you need credit for courses.
