College Transfers

Transfers
In a 2010 report of the National Association for College Admission Counseling, not all colleges provide merit aid for transfer students.  Actually, only twenty-three percent do.  Of those colleges that do provide aid, it is often less than the original amount.  This is often true for students transferring in January when most aid has already been given out.  Transfer students need to ask about housing options, as on-campus housing may not be guaranteed.  If offered by the school, students should attend transfer orientation as early as possible to maximize housing options.
