After finishing her Associate of Arts degree at Cottey College, Amanda Miller sought a small, warm environment with caring professors in which to complete her four-year degree.
“I’m glad I made the transition to Hastings College,” said Miller, a journalism and media arts student from Woodland Park, Colorado. “Professors are willing to help me grow. Switching to another liberal arts college made it possible for all my credits to transfer, and now I know I’m getting a well-rounded education because of it.”
On June 18, 2015, students considering transferring to Hastings College for the same amazing experience Miller is enjoying will have the opportunity to compete for additional scholarships – from $500 to $5,000 – during the inaugural Transfer Scholar Day. Scholarships awarded following Transfer Scholar Day are in addition to any other academic or talent scholarships.
Students transferring or considering transferring to Hastings College from two- or four-year institutions are eligible to participate.
To secure an appointment, students must register at hastings.edu/transferscholar by Friday, June 12, 2015. During the appointment, students will discuss their academic, leadership and career goals with faculty and staff, and have the opportunity to tour campus and the community of Hastings.
“Students who transfer to Hastings College thrive on campus, graduate and go on to do great things,” said Susan Meeske, Vice President for Enrollment and Marketing. “We work with our transfer students to maximize their previous college work and provide an environment to help them complete their bachelor’s degree efficiently so they can get started in their career.”
