College Transfer Support
Sometimes a student’s initial college selection doesn’t match their expectations. We encourage students to take a full year of courses, in residence, before deciding to transfer. It’s important to know that transferring colleges takes careful research and planning. Depending on the colleges (both the one your student is transferring from and the new college), there could be a large number of transfer options and requirements, which can seem overwhelming.
For those who determine that they need to make a change, we offer assistance with:
- Identifying Educational and Career Goals
Sometimes educational and career goals change after you start your college journey. Changing majors can mean that your initial college no longer fits your needs. That's where College Connectors comes in. We can assist with how to pursue your interests in college and beyond.
- College Search
When you and your College Connectors counselor meet, you will work together to develop a refined list of potential transfer schools. From there, you’ll research each school more in-depth to get a better idea if each school would be a good fit for you.
- Application Timelines
If you’re interested in applying to multiple colleges, each of your applications’ timelines can seem to run together. Likewise, within each application, various submission dates can also seem excessive. Your College Connectors counselor will develop a proper application timeline so you can focus on perfecting your applications instead of worrying about due dates.
- Essay Development
A critical piece of your transfer application is understanding and explaining why you are making a college change and what you will bring to the new campus. We can help you find your voice.
All College Connectors counselors specialize in providing hands-on assistance to our students who are navigating the transfer process. If you’re thinking of transferring schools but don’t know which direction to go, your counselor can help you start a fresh college search process to get the ball rolling.
However, if you’re ready to transfer schools and already have a clear idea of where you’re headed, your college planner can guide you on a specific path. Because certain classes and grades have the potential to transfer with you to your new school, you’ll need to have the correct forms and other paperwork ready. Your counselor can help you refine the application process to make it as seamless as possible.
You know it’s time to make a change, so why not act with confidence? Ensure you’re fully prepared to make the transfer with a College Connectors counselor. To learn more about our college planning services, contact us today to schedule a consultation.
