College Transfer

College Transfers

Turning disappointment into an opportunity for growth, self-discovery, and an exciting fresh start

When your first college isn’t for you

Our transfer students are as eclectic and variable as the college transfer process itself.

You might be seeking a change because you’re not happy with your current college’s offerings in your desired major. Or you might be wanting to go after that more selective college you weren’t successful in realizing the first time around. Or maybe you are finding yourself facing academic or other trouble and need a fresh start. Maybe you are not clicking socially in your new environment. You could also be like many who are experiencing emotional challenges that have gotten in the way of a typical or healthy undergraduate experience and you are requiring some specialized attention that gets you on the road to healing and to a new and better college experience.

When it’s time to better your situation

When you began the Herculean task of choosing, applying to, and gaining admission to your “ideal” college, you likely had high hopes that your dreams would be fulfilled once you stepped on campus. Then, when your actual college experience fell short of your expectations, you dared to think about doing it all again to better your college experience. Our transfer experts applaud your courage and confidence and are ready to join your journey of finding the college that will make you happy and better fit your goals, interests and needs. We’ll help you build an excellent candidacy and navigate the unique and demanding transfer-specific requirements of the application process, all made easier by our W.I.S.E. Method of Educational Planning.

When college doesn’t go as planned

For all too many undergraduates, college proves to present challenges they are not yet ready to confront. They may find themselves unprepared to manage the unscheduled time, the social pressures or the unfamiliarity of new experiences. Many end up isolated, anxious, depressed or even in some disciplinary trouble because of poor decisions they’ve made. Many more get behind academically, drop or fail classes, and end up on probation. All is not lost. Our experts help students find a way forward by rebuilding their records and their confidence, all as part of a path forward to a new college that better suits their needs and interests.

Our College Planning Specialties

Developmental or Academic Crisis

Some students’ first college experience reveals mental health challenges that get in the way of healthy functioning. Our experts help students find the right type and level of treatment that brings restored health and becomes a path to re-entering a more successful college experience.

Learning Differences

Students with learning differences may start college only to find that they can’t meet the academic demands even with access to disabilities services. Our transfer experts help students use what they’ve learned from their first college experience to find a new path to college success.

Athletic Recruiting

With the transfer portal now open to collegiate athletes, a number of student-athletes who aren’t finding athletic or academic fulfillment in their current college are looking for a change. Our athletic experts help transfer students get it right the second time around.
