Many part-time undergraduates come to SHU’s University College to complete their education after a lengthy absence from college. Other students transfer directly from a community college, professional program or after accumulating significant real-world experience.
The convenience of taking daytime, evening, online, Saturday and accelerated classes combined with our generous transfer credit policy make Sacred Heart University the ideal choice for part-time students who are prepared to pursue their associate, bachelor's or pre-professional programs.
