    If you're thinking about applying to Saint Vincent College, we encourage you to visit the campus, meet some of the people here, and have a look around. Many of our students tell us that it was during their campus visit that they knew without reservation that Saint Vincent College was the right choice for them.

    Our Office of Admission and Financial Aid is open from 9 A.M. until 4 P.M. on weekdays and by appointment on Saturdays. If you'll let us know when you would like to visit, we will be happy to schedule an admission appointment and campus tour for you during one of those times. Our phone number is (724) 805-2500 or 1-800-SVC-5549. An online visit request form is also available here.

    Early Enrollment

    If you have an exceptional record, Saint Vincent College may allow you to begin your degree program after you've completed your junior year in high school. To be considered for this option, you should be in the upper tenth of your class and have the assurance that your high school will grant you a diploma after you've successfully completed one year of college. An interview with the Dean of Admission is required.

    Transfer Admission

    If you are applying to Saint Vincent College as a transfer student, your academic achievement and personal history at the post-secondary schools you've attended will be of primary importance to us. However, we'll also need to receive your secondary school record as background information for academic counseling.

    A transfer counselor in the Office of Admission and Financial Aid will evaluate your transcripts at your request—even before you apply.

    Faculty members are available through the Office of Admission and Financial Aid for interviews, course advisement, and class scheduling.

    We also recommend that you schedule a personal interview with the Office of Admission and Financial Aid.


    Saint Vincent College has a rolling admission policy; that is, we'll notify you of our admission committee's decision shortly after we've received all your credentials.
