The transfer admissions process can often be even more selective than regular undergraduate admissions, and with 35% of college students transferring at least once, it’s important to understand exactly how difficult (or not!) it is to transfer to your dream school. Why Transfer?
Making the decision to transfer colleges is not easy. For undergraduates considering a transfer to another university, the thought of going through the admissions process again is daunting, especially with an entirely different procedure to navigate. The transfer admissions process is highly competitive, especially if a student is looking to transfer to a college that is already extremely selective, and how applications are evaluated is very different.
There are a number of reasons why students may want to transfer to a different school after their first year. Maybe they decided to change their major but their current school doesn't offer it. Or perhaps the hustle and bustle of an urban campus turned out to be more stressful than a student originally thought.
