Parking & Map

If you plan on bringing a vehicle to campus, make sure to fill out the Vehicle Information section of online registration. Once we have this information, a parking permit will be issued ($50) to you. Place this sticker on your windshield on the lower passenger’s side corner right away to avoid getting a parking ticket. Replacement permits can be obtained from the Student Life office for a fee of $5.

Sterling College transfers in courses, with a grade of C- or higher, that have been taken at a regionally accredited college or university.  Remedial/preparatory level credits and athletic participation credits will not be accepted for transfer. No more than 65 credit hours from a two-year college will count toward Sterling College graduation requirements.

Unaccredited coursework may be accepted on a case by case basis, upon evaluation and review.
