Smoothing the Transition

Transferring colleges can sometimes feel overwhelming. We try to make the process as smooth as possible. You are assigned a dedicated transfer advisor who can offer guidance every step of the way. Admissions are reviewed on a rolling basis, giving you time to prepare a strong application. You will be automatically considered for merit-based scholarships, with some awards reserved specifically for transfer students. We will work with you, as well, to make sure your hard work is recognized by mapping your transfer credits toward your bachelor's degree.
