Due to the COVID-19 / Coronavirus issues, THE ADMISSIONS OFFICE IS OPERATING REMOTELY and our team is available to connect with you and answer your Admissions and Financial Aid-related questions. Please let us know how we can help you. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Together, we’ll get through this.


Change is good. You’ve done another school and you have the courage and conviction to know you want something different. That’s gutsy. Bold. Decisive. And we like it.

But change can sometimes be scary or confusing. That’s where these two Transfer pros come in. The two Joes are Transfer Specialists and can help you through the whole process. Think of them as your personal Transfer Tour Guides.

We encourage you to contact them directly — going straight to the source. They truly want to help you transfer here.
