About the Guide

The Kaplan Educational Foundation’s Your 2018 Guide to College Transfer is a comprehensive handbook profiling top schools for transfer across the United States, serving as a resource for students and school advisors to navigate the entire transfer process, from application to enrollment.

For students who always planned to transfer credits as well as those who just realized there’s a better path to their bachelor’s degrees, this guide has all the information needed to assess educational options and choose the right school, including in-depth school profiles containing transfer admissions policies, financial aid information, and descriptions of resources available specifically for transfer students.

In this first edition, the editors have collected the Foundation’s decade of expertise in helping students successfully transfer to competitive four-year colleges and universities. Your 2018 Guide to College Transfer profiles 90 top transfer schools in the U.S. and highlights the best schools for non-traditional students, including veterans, adult students with their own families, and recent immigrants who may be unfamiliar with U.S. colleges.

"I see this guide as a roadmap for transfer students and their families ... [and] 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

About the Kaplan Educational Foundation

The Kaplan Educational Foundation is a 501(c)3 public charity initially established with the support of a generous endowment funded by Kaplan, Inc. executives. In 2006, the Kaplan Educational Foundation launched the Kaplan Leadership Program (KLP). It is a highly comprehensive program designed to provide financial aid, academic support, leadership skills development, and cultural enrichment. The program’s unique and trailblazing model is filling a gap among an often overlooked population of students: low-income, high-potential, underrepresented community college students. KLP Scholars are attending highly competitive four-year schools while program alumni have graduated with honors, landed notable positions in their fields of interest, and earned degrees from highly selective graduate schools.
