Counseling for College Transfer Students

There are several transfer paths a student may choose to follow including transfer from a 2-year college to a 4-year institution or from one 4-year school to another.

Doing College has helped many students understand and access the transfer path options for:

  • California’s Community College System and the University of California campuses
  • California’s Community College System and the California State University campuses
  • Private colleges and universities throughout the nation and abroad

Due to the many students nationwide seeking to transfer from one college to another, for one reason or another, the 2 hour minimum consultation fee has been put into place for transfer students.

In the first 2 hour paid consultation, Doing College provides an overview of transfer admissions from different types of colleges (community colleges, in-state and out-of-state public transfer options and private school transfer admissions), as well as the pros and cons of each and common pitfalls. We also can review a student’s academic history and help establish college and career goals.

Subsequent counseling sessions can accomplish the following objectives:

  • Identify which transfer path(s), private and/or public, is right for you
  • Provide a specific plan for the transfer process focused on the student’s particular interests and needs coupled with the transfer school requirements
  • Develop a transfer college list balanced by admission probability
  • Provide an organizing session to establish admission requirements and set a timeline
  • Provide full guidance for essay development and completion of transfer applications

All sessions are currently held online.
