Olivet College welcomes all types of transfer students and prides itself on the flexibility to meet a wide range of students’ needs. Whether you are seeking a four-year degree after attending community college, are a student-veteran exploring educational opportunities, have decided to complete your degree a few months to a few decades after originally beginning, or are in another special circumstance, Olivet College is excited to help you create a successful future and seamlessly transition to college. There is still time to transfer and begin classes this fall — scholarship opportunities and much more make Olivet College the perfect fit.
INDIVIDUALIZED ATTENTION AND TRANSFER FLEXIBILITY
Olivet College upholds a diverse and inclusive campus community and welcomes students of all backgrounds – including transfer students who may not fall into the same categories as traditional college students. The College recognizes that because transfer students have had a different college journey, they also have different needs. Individualized attention from a transfer specialist who focuses on meeting those needs is just one of the ways OC ensures transfer students have the tools they need to succeed. Each transfer student will meet with Jared Stratz, director of admissions, to identify their goals and plan their transition to Olivet College.
“Olivet College is proud to welcome transfer students, and I am always eager to aid this special population of students in their college journey,” Jared said. “The admissions team treats every student like family, and transfer students receive the same specialized approach; however, we recognize that transfer students are unique, and we make sure to honor their unique wants and needs.”
MAXIMUM NUMBER OF CREDITS TRANSFERRED
In addition, credits that may not transfer at other colleges and universities could transfer to Olivet College. Rather than taking a standardized approach to identifying which credits are accepted, students will meet with a faculty adviser in their chosen program to review and compare credits earned with course offerings at OC. Each class is reviewed individually, allowing transfer students to enter the new leg of their college journey without losing their previous progress.
SCHOLARSHIPS AND FINANCIAL AID
Scholarship opportunities and financial aid are available to transfer students, and every student is guaranteed a form of assistance. These rewards will be based on the highest GPA from previously attended institutions, regardless of the level of that institution – community college, university or high school. Olivet College offers a wide range of grants and scholarships, including many based on academic performance, talent, veteran status and more.
“My message to transfer students: I know that transferring to a new school or returning to college can be a difficult decision, but the team and I are here to make sure you reach your goals,” Jared emphasized. “I encourage students to apply and reach out to me; I can help you begin exploring your potential at Olivet College right away.”
