We are deeply saddened by the news that Holy Family College is closing its doors after nearly 85 years, and we know that one of the biggest challenges facing students is what to do next.

While the journey to your next destination may seem daunting, our admission staff is committed to ensuring you can easily continue your education for the same cost (or less), counting credits you’ve already earned toward a degree at Ripon College.

Ripon College and Holy Family College signed an agreement that will include a teach-out agreement that would cover students who were entering their final year at Holy Family and a transfer agreement for other Holy Family students.

Students transferring from Holy Family College to Ripon College will have guaranteed admission if they’re in good academic standing, and receive other numerous benefits. Click here for a non-exhaustive list.
Please take the time explore our College offerings and review our areas of study to ensure we offer your program. All of our offerings are taught by professionals of the highest degrees in their field. After you’ve found your program, please follow the steps below.
