Admission counselors understand that sometimes the first school you choose isn’t the best fit, or you complete general requirements at one school and want to transfer to finish your degree.
Many of our schools have night, weekend or other programs that allow students to continue working and caring for families while going to school. Others offer the “traditional” undergraduate experience for transfer students.
To help make the transfer process as smooth as possible and to help you finish your degree on time, here are some tips:
- As early as you can, look up the transfer requirements online for the school you may want to transfer to and work to fulfill their requirements. View the college profile on this site. Then follow the college's link for more detailed information.
- Have an early conversation with a transfer adviser at the school you plan to transfer to. They may have suggestions that can help you stay on track.
- Most transfer applications require an essay about why you want to transfer to that institution. Keep that in mind so you know what to write when the time comes.
- Have course syllabi available for each class you've taken at your previous college so the new college can determine which credits may transfer.
