University of Saint Joseph Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG)

USJ and Connecticut Community Colleges (CCC) have developed a partnership to make transferring from a community college to USJ a seamless transition through the Transfer Admission Guarantee Program (TAG). TAG is designed to make the pathway to transfer to a bachelor’s degree program at USJ easier than ever for qualified community college students. Apply online through the USJ website or the Common Application.

  • Any Connecticut Community College graduate with an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree, from 2014-2020 and beyond, and a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5 are guaranteed admission to the University of Saint Joseph (several academic majors have additional requirements).
  • USJ accepts almost all credits from CCC students. Completion of an associate degree or 60 transferable credits satisfies the majority of USJ’s General Education requirements.
  • Students may enroll full-time, apply for USJ scholarships and institutional aid, live on campus or commute, and become eligible to participate in Division III athletic teams.
  • To help community college students prepare for transfer to USJ and shorten the time to completion of the bachelor’s degree, students enrolled in at least 12 credits at one of the state’s community colleges can take one course per semester for free at USJ (dependent upon course availability, some limitations may apply).

Degree Completion Programs: Transfer Your Credits & Complete Your Degree at USJ

USJ values your prior work and academic experiences—qualified students who have earned their associate's degree and/or a minimum of 60+ transferable credits can complete the requirements for the following degree completion programs:

  • Management
  • Psychology
  • R.N. to B.S. in Nursing
  • Social Work

Requirements for the degree completion programs include:

  • Completion of a minimum of 120 semester hours of course work contingent upon the requirements for the program. These hours can include a combination of courses at USJ, within the Consortium, or transferred from another regionally accredited institution.
  • With the exception of the RN-BS in Nursing, students must earn 45 credits from USJ. The last 24 credits counted toward a degree must be taken at USJ. RN-BS students must earn 30 credits from USJ.
  • A minimum GPA of 2.0 ("C" average in all work completed— some majors may require a higher GPA).
  • Core curriculum and competencies for your degree program

Transfer and Articulation Policy (Adopted by the Board of Regents March 2012)

Connecticut families deserve a system of public higher education whose primary purpose is to produce graduates who form an engaged and well-informed citizenry, as well as a robust and appropriately educated workforce. To achieve this purpose, we must demonstrate that we provide a quality education. At the same time, we must create a clearly marked pathway from admission to graduation for all students by clarifying and streamlining the degree-program structures and transfer processes in our state colleges and universities to help students complete their post-secondary certifications and degrees as efficiently as possible. The ultimate goal of this reform is that all graduating students be prepared as productive world citizens. For more information visit the CT BOR website at http://www.ct.edu/initiatives/tap.

From the 2016-2017 Catalog

Guaranteed Admissions Agreement between the Connecticut Community Colleges and The Connecticut State University System

Graduates of an associate degree program within Connecticut’s community colleges with a GPA of 2.0 or higher are guaranteed admission to the university of their choice within the Connecticut State University System.

There is no guarantee that all course credits earned at a Connecticut community college will be accepted for transfer to a university within the Connecticut State University System. However, all Guaranteed Admission students are guaranteed junior status and guaranteed that a minimum of 60 transfer credits will be applied toward a baccalaureate degree at the university. Graduates of a community college who meet the requirements for guaranteed admissions must still make application by the date and on the forms prescribed by each university within the CSU System, including the submission of all the required transcripts, documents, and fees.

For more information on this agreement and the procedures, contact the Counseling Office at 203-332-5097.

Community College students can complete associate degree programs that transfer without hassle to all Connecticut State Universities and Charter Oak State College offering their major. Upon transfer, students are guaranteed full junior status and can complete a bachelor's degree in their major without losing any credits or be required to take any extra credits.
