We welcome applications from transfer students throughout the year - no need to wait to apply. Transfer students can begin classes at our Winona campus in either our fall or spring semesters.

Transfer on-the-spot decision interviews allow students transferring from another college or university to visit with an admission counselor who will review your application and required documents. Contact the Admission Office to schedule an appointment. You will receive a decision on-the-spot upon your arrival to campus, pending your submission of the online Saint Mary’s University application or the common application at least three days prior of your appointment. All official required documents listed above in the transfer applicant checklist are necessary in order to receive an admission decision.
