Transfer StudentsIMG 0002

Every semester students transfer to AMC from colleges all across the country. As such, transfer students are an integral part of the vibrant AMC community. However, transfer students come to us with their own unique set of needs as they navigate the enrollment process and transition to their new surroundings. As such, we have a day dedicated just for transfer students and their families.

Transfer SOAR days are one-day orientation sessions designed to assist transfer students in their transition to the Anna Maria College community. Informational sessions cover topics such as:

  • Academic Expectations
  • Campus Support Services
  • Financial Planning
  • Public Safety

In addition, students will complete such necessary enrollment steps as:

  • Accuplacer testing (if necessary)
  • Student ID photos
  • Virtual Campus Introduction
  • Transfer Credit Review and Course Schedule Adjustments

The review of transfer student transcripts is completed by the Registrar’s Office throughout the spring and summer. The Office of Academic Advising in conjunction with faculty members from each of our schools connects with transfer students individually throughout the summer to confirm information and discuss/confirm appropriate course scheduling. The transfer SOAR date provides an opportunity for transfer students to make final adjustments to their course schedule and get a jumpstart on the semester!
