  • Transfer students at Landmark College receive individualized, personal assistance during the application process and throughout their Landmark College education. All applicants are assigned an admissions and financial aid counselor. We recognize that going through the transfer admissions process may seem overwhelming and we’re here to help every step of the way. As students, transfers meet frequently with their advisors who help them progress both in and out of the classroom. All transfer students are assigned an academic advisor with whom they meet on a weekly basis. The academic advisor provides support around issues of time management, organization, and work completion. Our Career Connections office works with students who are interested in internships, campus employment, and other opportunities to make connections between work and academics. Their advisors and counselors also help map out their program of study—whether it’s an associates or bachelor’s degree. Transfer students who come to Landmark College for just a bridge experience or year work with their advisors to ensure they get the support they need to successfully transfer back to their original college or university.

I really struggled during my first two years at another college. Landmark College opened my eyes to see that it’s okay to approach things differently.”
