GILBERT, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

A new college is moving into Gilbert, offering degree completion courses, adult completion courses and graduate degrees in liberal arts, nursing and business. Saint Xavier University will be in Gilbert's downtown Heritage district and is a satellite campus to its Chicago based university.

Construction crews are nearing completion on the four-story, 90,000-square-foot Saint Xavier University-Arizona as one of the centerpieces to Gilbert's growing and historic downtown Heritage District.

The college will be Gilbert's first university and Saint Xavier's first campus outside of Chicago.

The college is offering several master's degree and bachelor's degree programs. They will accept up to 70 transfer credits and are working closely with Maricopa County Community Colleges to ensure these credits will transfer smoothly.

Enrollment is open now, and interested students can find out more at the university's enrollment center at 119 N. Gilbert Road, Suite 102.
