I have worked in Admissions for almost 10 years and have been working with transfer students for almost five years. The most important question is, “How will my credits transfer?”
You need to know how those credits you’ve earned will transfer and that all you went through to get them – late night cram sessions, and running from work to college and back to work – was not a waste of time. At Corban, you will get concrete answers!
Here’s how you know if your credits will transfer to Corban. Can you say yes to these three statements?
– My credits are from an accredited university or college.
– My credits are from “100” or “freshman” level courses or higher.
– I earned a “C-“ or better.
If you can answer “yes” to all three, then rejoice! Your credits will transfer to Corban!
As you know though, that isn’t the end of the story. The next question is, “How long will it take me to finish my degree?” This question is much more difficult but not impossible to answer.
If we receive an official transcript from you, it’s amazing what we can do with it! If you send me a screenshot of your classes, I can give you a pretty good idea, but the official transcript is where it’s at. Once we have that transcript, we can get it evaluated within 48 hours. That is a crazy fast turnaround!
If you know what you want to study, then we can plug your evaluation into the degree and give you a very good idea of how long it will take you to finish. In fact, we can even connect with an advisor in that discipline and get their feedback.
The worst thing for a transfer student is a “surprise” when it comes to credit transferring. We try to limit surprises to birthdays and such. This also means it’s very important to connect with me, Jordan, as soon as you can about transferring. Every college has slightly different general education requirements, and you want to make sure as many of your gen. ed. courses as possible will transfer to Corban’s gen. ed. requirements, rather than one more “elective credit.”
