TRANSFER STUDENTS

I can work with students who are looking to:
1) Transfer from a community college to a four year college, or
2) Transfer from a four year college to another four year college that is a better fit (that's called a lateral transfer).
We will work together to analyze your situation, determine what you are looking for, and figure out how to transfer your credits to a college that is right for you!
Please contact me so that we can get started.
