Johnson College is making it even easier for prospective students to transfer into its programs with a new initiative called Transfer Tuesday. Transfer Tuesday is a process that addresses the specific needs of the growing population of Transfer Students. The College is encouraging transfer students to visit the college on any Tuesday throughout the year to speak with an admissions representative about degree options and transferring credits. Transfer Tuesday takes the Transfer Day concept and makes it a year-round philosophy on campus to ensure prospective students begin meeting their academic goals as quickly as possible. The goal is to make the process of transferring more customer focused and stress free for students.
In 2015, Johnson College welcomed the largest number of transfer students since the College started tracking this population in 2006 with a 3% increase from the prior year, representing 35% of incoming students. One in every three students on campus has transferred at least one class from another college or university. The most common reason for students transferring to Johnson College is a change in career path due to the inability to secure employment in their originally chosen curriculum. All 14 of the College’s programs of study feature at least one transfer student among its cohort. The graduation rate of transfer students is 5% higher than the overall Johnson College graduation rate.
