When Your First College Isn’t For You … or When College Doesn’t Go As Planned
When high school students begin to undertake the Herculean task of choosing, applying to, and gaining admission to their “ideal” college, they do so with high hopes and equally heightened expectations. So it likely comes as no surprise that some may find that the actual college experience falls short of their expectations. While most adapt to their new reality, the disappointment or mismatch may just be too great to make the best of.
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 area of academic focus. 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.
Whatever the reason you find yourself looking to transfer, you’ll find our expert transfer counselors to be highly knowledgeable, deeply committed to your success, and the kind, compassionate and reassuring presence you need to help you navigate the very different process of applying to a new college part way through your undergraduate years.
