College Transfers

There are many reasons why you might decide you want to to transfer to a new college or university.  Perhaps your current schools is too large or too small. Maybe you have changed your career goals and you need an institution that has the resources, special programs, and coursework to support this new direction.  Maybe your reasons are geographic or the college you selected as a high school senior just does not feel like the best fit anymore. No matter; plenty of students transfer between colleges every year. In fact, about one-third of all students will swap institutions at least once before graduating.


Transferring colleges can be a great idea as long as your reasons are clear and you have confidence in the fit of the new schools to which you will be applying. That said, transferring involves an application process, and competition for open spots can be fierce.
