I loved Saint Mary’s. The classes are structured to help people who haven’t taken classes recently, and I liked the collaborative learning style. Being able to have meaningful conversations, presentations, and experiential learning was very helpful.

We accept technical college credits as well as military, industry and business training via the American Council on Education (ACE) or PLA. You can apply standardized tests such as CLEP or DSST toward your degree. Transfer up to 90 credits (75 percent of your bachelor’s of science degree). Please contact Saint Mary’s staff for a preliminary transfer evaluation. Learn more about transferring credits.
