Presenter, Jennifer Singer

Have you ever tried to advise a student transferring into the U.S. education system in mid-bachelor's degree study from a university outside the US? Their expectations versus reality rarely align, and it can be challenging to identify why. If the student has already completed two years at their previous institution, doesn't that mean they will start in the third year of the U.S. program? Why is there a difference between the number of credits that will transfer in and the number of credits that apply to the degree requirements? Let's explore how differences in education systems make transferring complicated. We begin with the basics and then review two cases: one regular transfer student, and one student coming through an institutional partnership.
