Transfer Students

Caring Faculty

Approximately one-third of our student body transferred to Sterling College. They are happy with their decision and you will be too! Our variety of academic programs and close-knit community will give you the education you are looking for as you build lifelong friendships.

After reading the transfer requirements, credit transfer information, and the Guaranteed Admission Advantage information (for associate's degree holders), transfer students can follow the same five-step process to be admitted to Sterling College. If you have any questions, contact your admissions counselor.
