St. John Fisher College seeks to admit students whose academic records indicate their willingness and ability to profit from instruction at the College.

St. John Fisher College admits students of either gender, of any age, race, color, creed, national or ethnic origin, or disability.

Categories of Applicants

The types of students considered include, but are not necessarily limited to, the following:

  • High school seniors/graduates seeking entry into the freshman year
  • Transfer students* from two-year or four-year colleges whose placement is judged solely on the basis of their previous college record
  • Veterans desiring to begin or to continue their study
  • International students who have completed the equivalent of a 12th-grade education in their home country
  • Educationally and financially disadvantaged students from New York State whose records are examined separately and whose studies are to some degree funded through an annual grant from the State Department of Education under the Arthur O. Eve Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP)

All of the above-listed categories of students are encouraged to avail themselves of an education at St. John Fisher College, either on a matriculated (those desiring to earn a bachelor’s degree) or non-matriculated basis.

*Transfer students who have completed 24 hours or fewer in college are required to submit an official high school transcript and SAT/ACT scores
