Submit all official transcripts for all college-level credit you have

credits and provide you with an advanced standing credit evaluation via
mail. We will accept up to 90 transferable credits (non-remedial,
non-vocational credits) for which you have earned a C or better. If you earned a B or better in a science course from an accredited 4-year institution, you will receive credit for the equivalent Seton Hall course. All other science courses will transfer in as general elective credit, provided they meet the general credit transfer criteria.

educational records without the student's consent. Parents also do not
have the right to call and inquire about their child’s status or
activities without this written consent. We encourage you to discuss
