All students are required to complete a minimum of 30 credit hours at Siena. Students transferring from a two-year college can receive up to 66 credits. Siena will accept a maximum of 75 credits from four-year institutions. Transfer credit will be given for those courses in which at least a "C" grade has been earned, and which are similar in content, level and scope to courses offered at Siena. Once admitted, students must make a deposit to hold their place in class.
On-campus housing will be awarded on a space available basis. Please apply early if housing is essential to your confirmation at Siena.
