Saint Joseph's College Transfer Support

Rockhurst University’s thoughts and prayers are with the students, faculty and staff of Saint Joseph’s College as we hear the news that it will suspend operations at the end of the 2016-17 academic year. We understand how difficult it had to be to come to that decision, and are here to support the Saint Joseph’s community through this transition.

As a fellow Catholic university and partner in the Great Lake Valley Athletic Conference, we would like to extend our assistance and support in helping Saint Joseph’s College students successfully complete their degrees on-time.

Recognizing and respecting The College’s unique core curriculum, Rockhurst is ready to support Saint Joseph’s students through individualized course articulation and the maximization of financial aid opportunities to ease their transition towards degree completion and the fulfillment of a transformative Catholic college education.

Any current Saint Joseph College student can bypass our fall 2017 transfer application process by contacting Nathan Elliott, Rockhurst University’s Director of Transfer Admission, directly and by sending us an official copy of your in-progress Saint Joseph’s transcript (as well as transcripts from any other college level institutions they may have attended).

Saint Joseph’s College transfer transition process to Rockhurst University:

  1. Saint Joseph’s College students can bypass Rockhurst University’s formal transfer application process by contacting Kylee Soucie, Assistant Director of Transfer Admissions at or by calling 816-501-4540.
  2. Send us your official Saint Joseph’s College in-progress transcript for review and we will respond with an admission decision and course equivalency articulations that help you stay on track to graduate.

File the FAFSA for the 2017-18 school year with Rockhurst (FAFSA Code 002499), and provide us an official copy of your Saint Joseph’s College financial aid package from the 2016-17 academic year. We’ll use this information to maximize financial aid options and minimize disruptions in your planned educational expenses.
