College Transfer Consultants – Expert Admissions Counseling Services

College Transfer Consultant – Admissions Counseling for Transfer Applicants 

Data recently released by the National Student Clearinghouse reveals that a third of first-time college students will switch institutions during their postsecondary career. The reasons are as varied as the colleges into which they transfer. Some students decide to engage the transfer admissions process and seek admissions consulting for college transfers because they wish to enroll at a more affordable college, while others seek a more selective college or a college that offers programs and courses more appropriately aligned with their academic or career interests.

Why You Need a College Transfer Consultant

Despite the high number of prospective transfer students, there is relatively little information about navigating college transfer admissions. Further, very few college admission consultants and private college counselors specialize in admissions consulting for college transfers and guiding transfer students into more suitable colleges and universities. While there are some similarities between freshman and transfer admissions, the latter places more emphasis on student-institution fit. Therefore, in addition to demonstrating postsecondary achievement (through one’s college grades), transfer applicants must also be able to articulate why they wish to transfer and why they believe their colleges of interest offer a better match.
