Every semester, Loras welcomes new transfer students to campus from a variety of two- and four-year institutions locally, regionally and nationally. These students bring a unique blend of diversity and experiences to campus, which in turn enriches the entire Duhawk community. Students typically transfer to Loras for specific academic programs, financial aid reasons, collegiate athletics, to be closer to home and/or because Loras is the best “fit” for them. Helping transfers navigate admission and financial aid processes at Loras is something Admission staff addresses on a regular basis. Transfer students, while not new to college, are new to Loras, and they play a vital role in our community. We’ve seen an increase in the number of students who want to continue their education at Loras after starting at a community college or other four-year institution.
Transfers have also been an increasingly important population in terms of enrollment at Loras. The Admission Office regularly visits community colleges in Iowa and Illinois to promote transfer programs and meet with potential students. Transfer equivalency guides are in place with multiple two- and four-year schools to assist students in taking coursework that is transferrable. Loras also attends college fairs geared specifically toward transfers, in addition to hosting transfer visit and registration days. “Anything we can do to help a transfer student plan early is key to our ability to enroll them here. With the guidance and support we offer, on top of competitive transfer scholarships, we are able to build meaningful relationships with students and show them how truly affordable we are.”
