Whether you always knew you’d transfer credits or you just realized there’s a better path to your degree, this guide is for you. We provide all the information you need to assess your educational options and choose the right school for you, including in-depth, updated school profiles that feature transfer admissions policies, financial aid options, and resources available specifically for transfer students — all in one place.

Drawing on over a decade of success helping community college students transfer to selective four-year schools, this comprehensive handbook features more than 100 in-depth profiles of the top transfer schools in the U.S., with expert advice on how to stand out to transfer admissions officers.

Your 2019 Guide to College Transfer also includes specialized advice for underrepresented, first-generation, non-traditional age, community college, military-affiliated, DACA, and undocumented students contemplating transfer, as well as students with children. New to the 2019 edition are profiles of online schools and advice about online bachelor’s program options.

We'll show you what makes a student successful during the admissions, transfer, and enrollment processes, and how to achieve that success in your own transfer. Whether you're a student, a parent, a guidance counselor, or a college advisor, this guide can help you navigate the complex landscape of college transfer.

100% of the proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the Kaplan Educational Foundation, a 501(c)3 public charity.

"The Kaplan Educational Foundation’s Transfer Guide proves that Kaplan gets it. They truly understand both the challenges facing transfer students and the value these students bring to transfer institutions. I see this guide as a roadmap for transfer students and their families as they navigate the complexities of finding a right-fit transfer institution. I also see this guide as a resource for educators who are looking for new and better ways to meet the unique needs of transfer students."— Dr. Lynn Tincher-Ladner, President and CEO, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society

“The go-to guide for students planning their transfer pathway. [...] This second edition has been updated cover-to-cover to provide timely resources.” —- Giuseppe Basili, Executive Director, Jack Kent Cooke Foundation
