Transfer Students

Direct Transfer Degrees

A number of associate degrees from regionally accredited community colleges are transferable to Seattle Pacific University. Be sure to speak with an admissions or academic counselor to make sure you choose the right one for you. If you are transferring from a 4-year college or university, or from a community college in a state not listed your transcript will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis. Be sure to view our Transfer Equivalency Guide for your college or university.
