Advising For Transfer

Transfer FAQs/Tips

Where can I go for information about four year colleges and universities?

You will need to make a list of possible transfer schools, and then collect detailed information on each college under consideration.

There are two main ways to gather information about a transfer school.

  1. You Visit the School
    • Virtual Visits: Visit the college/university website to find out more. Current information about application deadlines, tuition and fees, as well as scholarships, may be found on each school's website.
    • College Visits: Colleges frequently sponsor open houses for visitors and potential students. You can visit the school's website to learn details about making a trip to the college campus. Be sure to always schedule your visit instead of just dropping by.
  2. The School Comes to Chesapeake College!
    • Recruiter Visits: Some colleges and universities make special visits to Chesapeake College to provide information for interested students.
    • Transfer Fairs: Every Fall semester, Chesapeake College sponsors a Transfer Fair on the main campus. The Transfer Fair hosts representatives from many Maryland Colleges and Universities.
