Internships and job placement Many majors at SHU require an in- ternship for graduation, and SHU’s extensive network of recruitment partners allows students in all majors to gain experience through intern- ships, field placements, and practi- cums. Students also intern in New York City throughout the school year and in their home states during summer breaks. Approximately 98% of SHU graduates are employed or attending graduate school one year after graduation.


The Catholic tradition As the second-largest Catholic uni- versity in New England, SHU pro- vides students with an education rooted in the Catholic intellectual tra- dition. The spiritual heart of campus is the stunning Chapel of the Holy Spirit, which provides a place of cel- ebration and gathering for people of all faiths.


Buildings and facilities On the heels of opening the Center for Healthcare Education, two new residence halls, and an on-campus diner, the Bobby Valentine Health & Recreation Center opened in Au- gust 2019, two additional residence halls will open in January 2020, and SHU has begun three more residence halls and dining areas. An engineer- ing makerspace and an artificial in- telligence lab will be completed in fall 2019. n

Transfer Student Support CREDIT EVALUATIONS


Sacred Heart offers a generous credit evaluation process. Up to 66 credits from a two-


year institution and up to 90 credits from a four-year institution will be accepted. Through SHU’s core waiver process, students who have already earned 60 credits or more at


another institution will have the foundational core curriculum waived (with the exception of one course, Catholic Intellectual Tradition).


MAJOR IN SUCCESS Students undecided on a major or career path find personalized guidance from


professional career coaches and peer mentors in a unique, structured program that helps students choose a major that fits them or verify a choice they’ve already made.


FIRST YEAR EXPERIENCE (FYE) COURSE FYE is an eight-week, non-credit course that supports select transfer students in their


transition to SHU and teaches skills, behaviors, and attitudes that contribute to resilience and success. The FYE instructor and peer mentor serve as valuable campus resources, and the small class size helps facilitate connections between students. Eligibility for this


course is determined on a case-by-case basis based on factors such as number of credits and prior college experience.


ACADEMIC SUPPORT


The Student Success Center offers learning strategies to meet individual students’ needs in the form of tutoring, workshops, Learning Labs, writing support, and group study


sessions. The Office of Student Accessibility offers additional services to students with documented learning disabilities.


TRANSFER ORIENTATION


Orientation programs for transfer students are held each January and August to allow students to spend time getting to know the SHU campus and its resources and ensure students are prepared for a successful start to their SHU experience.
