PASSHE STUDENTS ONLY:

  • Many students from PASSHE schools find that taking courses at SRU during the Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter terms help them get ahead and stay on track for graduation.

  • If you are a PASSHE student looking to transfer only credits back to your home institution, you are considered a Transient Student applicant and should fill out the Undergraduate Admissions application. If you have questions, please contact Admissions directly at asktherock@sru.edu or 724-738-2015 and identify yourself as a Transient Student applicant.
