(Admission of degreed students, nondegree-seeking students, men and auditors)
Applicants who have a bachelor's degree and are seeking a second degree or second major certificate must submit an application, $25 application fee (waived for St. Catherine alumnae) and official transcripts from each post-secondary educational institution attended. Graduates of St. Catherine University may not obtain a second bachelor's degree from the University. However, St. Catherine University graduates may take classes for personal enrichment or to pursue a second major certificate. Applicants who have a bachelor's degree from another institution may obtain a second degree from St. Catherine University. To do so, it will be necessary to fulfill all the requirements for graduation, not simply those for the major. Second major certificate students need to fulfill only the requirements for the major.
Nondegree-seeking students include students who have or have not completed a degree, but wish to take courses for personal enrichment or career enhancement. Nondegree-seeking students must submit an application, $25 application fee and an unofficial transcript from the last institution attended. Nondegree-seeking students who wish to change their status to degree seeking must submit official transcripts from all institutions attended to the Office of Admission. Admission as a nondegree-seeking student is not a guarantee of admission as a degree seeking student. Individuals enrolled in the associate program may take no more than 12 credits as a nondegree-seeking student.
As a primarily undergraduate institution dedicated to educating women, St. Catherine University, College for Women, grants bachelor's degrees to women only. Men who have completed a B.A. or B.S. degree may apply to graduate programs or may earn a second major as described above. Men who have completed an A.S. in Nursing may apply to the RN-BS degree completion section. Men without degrees may take courses at the University but may not earn a bachelor's degree. Students wishing to audit course work should contact the Registrar's Office. For further information on audit policies, see the Academic Information section of this catalog.
