Transfer admissions from one college to another has become a visible phenomenon in today's academic landscape. Some estimates show that well over half of American students who have earned bachelor's degrees have studied at more than one institution. Determining whether, when, and how to transfer has become a highly complex, costly, and often stressful process for many students. Selecting appropriate target schools, taking the right academic courses, developing interesting activities and skills, planning summer experiences, and writing outstanding essays, which have taken on a significant role in transfer admissions decisions, can all make a major difference in gaining admission to the institution of your choice.

The Educational Consulting Centers have been providing counseling services to deal with these issues for over forty years. We have an excellent record of appropriate college transfer placements for our clients, including the most selective schools. Our professional staff is proud of our record of guiding thousands of young women and men into the schools that have resulted in successful, fulfilling experiences. We monitor the finest institutions of all kinds, maintaining constant contact to make sure that they continue to provide the academic and personal services they promise to their students. Our research, writing, and daily counseling with students and families keep us well informed of trends in college transfer admissions and changes in individual colleges and universities.
