Transfer Opportunity Day
Considering your options for where to transfer and asking yourself, “what’s next?” There are a lot of choices out there, and it can be overwhelming at times to figure out where you want to complete your degree. That’s where we come in: we invite you to attend a visit day specifically for transfer students.
