Transfer Today

Prospective Transfer Students


We are fortunate to have many students transferring from other colleges to our business and accounting programs.  Approximately one third of our student population are comprised of transfer students.  Their diverse academic experience at various institutions of higher learning is tremendously valuable to the learning process of all our students in and out of the classroom.
