Saint Joseph's College is facing financial strains and because of these challenges, the school may close. However, Marian University is ready to welcome the college's students with open arms.

Saint Joseph's College has an enrollment of 1,200 students and Marian University welcoming the students to its campus is a welcome relief. After Saint Joseph's announcement that it will temporarily suspend operations at the end of this semester, Marian promises to assist the pupils using a seamless transfer process.

Marian guarantees that Saint Joseph's students will pay the same out of pocket fees they are currently paying, as reported by JC Online. In additional assurance, Marian is also honoring transfer credits with a minimum grade of C-Minus. According to Marian University President Daniel Elsener, they consider Saint Joseph to be a sister school and they want to help their students and staff in any way they can.

Admissions representatives are going to be on campus this Thursday to help the students with the transfer and admissions process. Students are advised that Marian is going to help tackle financial concerns, accreditation questions and academic limits. The university is also going to waive its application fee and will look into the admissions requirements and transfer credits as well.

Student-athletes should not worry, according to Elsener. Student-athletes who are competing intercollegiately are welcome to compete for open spots on the Marian roster, as reported by CBS. She also adds that even if there are no available spots, they want to provide financial aid packages that suit their needs.

Aside from Marian University, Purdue is also opening its doors to Saint Joseph's College students. They are also going to be on campus to provide assistance and meet with students individually. However, Purdue's University President Mitch Daniels explains that they will do their best to meet their financial needs but they cannot guarantee housing for 2017.
