Transferring from one school to another can be a difficult and overwhelming process. Credits can be lost, which means higher costs and a longer road to graduation, and fitting in at a new school can be challenging.
Adelphi set out to make it easier to transfer, offering an online program that allows students to quickly see how many of their credits they can transfer; holding Transfer Tuesdays throughout the summer allowing students to apply, gain acceptance and register all in one day; and helping transfers meet other students through special orientation programs.
The efforts not only caught the eye of students hoping to transfer, but of The New York Times, which prominently featured Adelphi in an Sunday, August 2, article titled “Colleges and Universities Woo Once-Overlooked Transfer Students.”
The article even quoted transfer student Nandy Brijlal, who decided she wanted to come to Adelphi after being wowed by an impromptu campus visit and realizing she wanted to go to smaller school. “I made an appointment with the admissions officer to find out about which credits would transfer; within one week I had my transfer credit evaluation, and I was enrolled as a junior in the fall,” she said.
