How hard is it to transfer to Roosevelt University?

How hard is it to transfer to Roosevelt University? Topic: Love is an art essay idea
June 25, 2019 / By Tilda
Question: I am about to start my second semester at Humboldt State University and I would really love to transfer to Roosevelt next year. My GPA was only 2.5 last semester, but should hopefully be around a 3.0 next semester but I don't know if that will even matter because I will have to apply before my grades are finalized. So can anyone with experience give me an idea of who they admit? Some people say its pretty easy and others say not at all. I won't be in the performing arts program, which Ive heard is really hard. And anyone who has applied, what about the essay? The FAQ said it was optional but highly recommended, while the transfer page said it was not required, although it may later be requested. And there was no spot for it on the applications. Please tell me if I have a decent chance. I really want to go. Thanks! I have found very few bad reviews about Roosevelt. I have read much more negative things about schools with "good reputations" like DePaul and Loyola. Roosevelt is continuing to gain in its reputation. So Im not really sure where you got that idea. Besides, with a 2.5 gap Im not hoping for any top tier schools. also the school Im at now has a pretty awful rep and its actually not bad at all...just not my style.

The retention rate at Roosevelt [the one in Illinois] is 60%. [College Board reports 56% which is even worse]. For a private university, that is very bad. 40% of the Freshmen didn't return for their sophomore year - they are "voting with their feet." The good news for you is that RU obviously has lots of openings available. They accepted about 64% of the transfer applicants last year. Also compare costs - in-state Humboldt at $7084 to RUs tuition of $25,000 per year.

USF is a private university. I dont know if Syracuse is. Look up the USF website and contact the Admissions Dept. What do you mean by "hard" ? Your grades? The city ? There are many places to live between L.A. and S.F. like Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, San Jose State, UC Santa Cruz or UC Santa Barbara, just a few examples.

Roxane Originally Answered: What credits transfer from Florida State University to Stanford University?
All of this information is available on Stanford's website, but I'll still provide an answer based on my own experiences with transferring in credit (as a first-year). Stanford is persnickety about the transfer credits they accept, and they decide on a student-by-student basis *after* you've matriculated. They have a clear policy regarding AP classes, but evaluate credit from other institutions on an individual basis. With the exception of AP classes, you cannot find out what will be transferred in until your first quarter on campus as a full-time student. Incoming first-years submit a completed request for transfer credit evaluation form to the Registrar's office, and usually around three weeks later receive the verdict about what's been accepted. Transfer applicants do not need to submit that form, but they still have to wait until they've been admitted to find out what has been accepted. Generally, credits are accepted if the course meets the following conditions: ~ It is completed at an accredited institution ~ *****It is substantially similar to courses offered at Stanford****** - this is the stipulation that is the most subject to interpretation by Stanford. ~ It is completed with a grade of C- or better ~ It does not duplicate, overlap or regress previous coursework Here is the policy for AP credit: http://studentaffairs.stanford.edu/regis... What round did you apply to Stanford through? If you applied early action then you should have been notified of the decision nearly a month ago, and should definitely contact them and find out what's happened. If you applied through the Regular Deadline round, relax. Of course you haven't gotten a decision from them yet; the deadline was just 12 days ago. No one has gotten a decision from that round yet. You could apply to transfer into Stanford as a sophomore or a junior. The primarily rule is that you must complete at least two full years of study at Stanford, so if you've advanced too far in your studies at another college you are usually ineligible. All undergraduates begin their studies in the autumn quarter unless they've had to defer for a serious medical condition or personal issue. You cannot apply to enter as a transfer applicant in the spring. Transfer applicants can only apply during one deadline round, which is in March, and they begin the fall. A few things to note: ~ Stanford does not offer an undergraduate degree in business. ~ It's extraordinarily difficult to get into Stanford as a transfer. Usually around 20 to 40 applicants are admitted per year, and almost everyone is making lateral moves from another top university. If you are not admitted to Stanford as a first-year, the odds that you'll get in as a transfer applicant are microscopically small. ~ The structure for Gen Ed requirements at Stanford is available online, and members of the public can access our course catalogue. You can then attempt to find comparable courses if you still are set on applying to transfer. ~ You can only If you don't get into Stanford, you could go to FSU, save a fortune, and apply to Stanford GSB. I don't mean to be unkind, but if Stanford is your "dream school" it's really surprising that you haven't taken the initiative to learn some of the basics about it. ~ skylark
Roxane Originally Answered: What credits transfer from Florida State University to Stanford University?
what transfers over has nothing to do with the state. so you will not find any list with what credits transfer from state to start. Just because FSU accepted those AP credits doesn't mean Stanford or any other university will when you transfer. Pretty sure Stanford does not accept intake for Spring semester. You can only apply and be accepted for Fall semester. Have you read transfer requirements on the Stanford web site?? If it states you are required to have 60 credits, then they mean it. I would get the facts on how many transfer students apply and how many are accepted. Only the school you want to transfer into can tell you what credits/classes they will accept
Roxane Originally Answered: What credits transfer from Florida State University to Stanford University?
No, there's no chart like that, and it won't help anyway - every college in every state has their own set of classes they offer, worth however many credits they want them to be worth, and may or may not take a similar class from another school. If you want to find out which classes will transfer, you need to read the requirements for a degree from Stanford and find classes at your own school with the same description. Not all schools will accept AP credits for college credit, and they are not worth the same number of credits at every school. Since Stanford is on the quarter system and most other schools are not, chances are good most classes won't transfer. Which is why they only accept about 1% of transfer applicants every year.
