Transfer to SUA

In order for Saint Ursula to be responsive to the hopes and needs of families with current freshmen at other schools, we will accept transfer inquiries the next school year throughout the current school year or until total maximum class enrollment has been met.


  • After October 1: Saint Ursula will begin accepting transfer applications. Transfer applications will only be accepted if space is available.  Students interested in Saint Ursula may schedule a shadow day once the school has received her completed application and unofficial transcript.  
  • After December 1: The Admissions Committee will review all transfer applications.  
  • By December 10: Process update letters are mailed to families who submitted a transfer application. Individual family meetings with qualified transfer applicants are scheduled.
  • After February 1: If space permits, Saint Ursula will review additional transfer applications.  

Saint Ursula acknowledges and understands that the two decision points, December and February, may be difficult for families that are eager to receive a decision regarding admittance. This intentional process will ensure that all transfer applications receive the appropriate review and consideration.  Such careful review will ensure that the admitted student is ready for the Saint Ursula college preparatory course load.

Transferring into Saint Ursula as a sophomore: 

  • Submit the Transfer Application Form along with a current unofficial high school transcript.  High School Placement Test scores are not required, but if available, will be considered along with state/standardized test scores.   The primary academic criteria for admissions decisions will be based on strong academic performance in a college preparatory curriculum. 

                      Transfer Application

                      Records Release Form

  • If admitted, submit a letter from either the Principal or Director of Guidance at the previous school saying the transfer student is leaving in good academic standing with no discipline or attendance issues. This letter must be received before a transfer student may attend her first day of class at Saint Ursula. 

Transferring into Saint Ursula as a junior:

  • Junior level transfer requests will only be taken if there is a family relocation to the Greater Cincinnati area.  
  • Contact Ms. Michelle Dellecave, Director of Admissions, at [email protected] or 513-961-3410 ext. 183 to discuss the process. 

Financial Aid
To be considered for financial aid grants for the 2020-21 school year, families must submit a financial aid application through FACTS by Monday, November 25, 2019. 

From the Ohio High School Athletic Association:
"If a student transfers at any time after the fifth day of the student’s ninth grade year or after having established eligibility prior to the start of school by playing in a contest (scrimmage, preview/jamboree, Foundation game or regular season/tournament contest), the student shall be eligible, insofar as transfer is concerned, for ONLY the first 50% of the maximum allowable regular season contests (including all scrimmages, preview/jamboree/Foundation games) in those sports in which the student participated (participation being defined as playing in a contest) during the 12 months immediately preceding this transfer. This transfer consequence shall remain in effect until the one-year anniversary of the date of enrollment in the school to which the student transferred, at which time the student is no longer considered a transfer student.
After the first 50% of the maximum allowable regular season contests have been competed, the student shall then become INELIGIBLE for the remainder of the regular season contests.  Furthermore, the student shall also remain ineligible to participate in the OHSAA sponsored tournament(s) in those respective sports until the one-year anniversary of the student’s date of enrollment. A student who did not participate in an OHSAA recognized sport in the 12 months immediately preceding the transfer is not subject to the consequence of this transfer bylaw."
