Transfer Students

While many students find just the right college and stay there for four years, statistics show that about one in three students who enroll in either a four-year or two-year college will probably transfer at some point. Reasons for transferring may be as varied as students themselves. Whether you want to be closer — or further — from home; changed your major or program of interest; want a more prestigious degree; or simply believe that the ‘grass is greener’ somewhere else, International College Counselors can help you during the transfer process.  As competition for open spots can be fierce and the college transfer process can be a big hassle, our expert college advisors can help you with some of the following:

  • Determine whether transferring schools is the best option
  • Develop, evaluate and finalize a list of colleges to which the transfer student will apply
  • Brainstorm essay ideas and review essays
  • Review and provide guidance on transfer student applications
  • Decide which professors to ask for recommendations and learn how to approach them for the best results
