Admissions Requirements

High School Students

High school students wishing to be directly admitted to the university must meet the criteria listed below. Please keep in mind that, as a Franciscan institution, we believe education should be available to everybody. All interested students are encouraged to apply online.

  1. Earn a 2.3 GPA on a 4 point scale.
  2. Earn a combined SAT score of 1000+ on the reading and math sections or earn
    an ACT composite score of 21+.
  3. Submit an essay.

Adult Candidates

Submit your high school transcripts and/or your GED scores (not the diploma). Some people worry about getting high school transcripts if they didn't graduate recently. It doesn't matter when you graduated, your school will still have your transcripts. If your high school no longer exists, you can contact the school corporation.

  1. Earn a 2.3 GPA on a 4 point scale.

Students who fall short of USF criteria will be required to submit an admissions essay. If you have questions about your eligibility, please call us. Your admissions counselor can guide you through the application process.

Transfer Students

Transferring doesn't have to be a difficult process. We have admissions counselors who are specially trained to help transfer students. USF is also one of the few schools that offer academic scholarships to transfer students.

  1. Earn a 2.3 GPA on a 4 point scale.
  2. Earn a combined SAT score of 1000+ on the reading and math sections or earn
    an ACT composite score of 21+. (SAT/ACT waived with 12 or more college credits)

Students who fall short of USF criteria will be required to submit an admissions essay. If you have questions about your eligibility, please call us. Your admissions counselor can guide you through the application process.

Transfer students may have course work earned at accredited institutions evaluated and posted to their University of Saint Francis transcript.

Transferred courses will be recorded on the student’s University of Saint Francis transcript provided a grade of “C” or better is earned. Some courses may require a transfer grade of "B" or better based on the major requirements. Accepted credit hours are not included in the computation of the student’s University of Saint Francis GPA.

Allied Health, Nursing and Science majors have an 5 year limit when transferring in science and pharmacology courses. For more information, please contact Cheryl Mioduski at cmioduski@sf.edu
