Kendall College has made it a priority to support incoming transfer students through specially designed events and admissions guides.
“We know it can be difficult and sometimes painfully confusing for students to transfer colleges,” says Kendall President Emily Williams Knight. “As more students apply for admissions at Kendall with existing credits from other institutions, we knew we needed to put tools in place to make the transition as easy as possible.”
Kendall College is thrilled to announce transfer agreements with the following schools:
Black Hawk College
Ivy Tech Community College
City Colleges of Chicago (CCC)
Joliet Junior College
College of Dupage
McHenry County College
College of Lake County
Moraine Valley Community College
Elgin Community College
Normandale Community College
“The feedback we’ve received from students about our transfer guides in particular has been terrific,” says Jeanette Konieczka, Kendall College Admissions Manager. “One student said it was the easiest process he had encountered at any of the schools he was applying to. That’s exactly what we’re going for!”
Coming up on April 2, Kendall will host an open house just for transfer students and adult learners. This “Transfer Tuesday” event will give students the opportunity to learn about Kendall’s programs in Hospitality, Culinary Arts, Business and Early Childhood Education.
Nick Bondi, a Junior in the School of Hospitality Management studying Hotel and Lodging Management & Global Hospitality Management, transferred to Kendall College in July 2012.
“I chose Kendall because of the size of the classroom settings and the reputation Kendall has in and around Chicago. It can be intimidating to move to a new school, starting with figuring out how your credits will transfer,” he said. “I think it’s great that Kendall is focusing on helping transfer students. I’ll be at the Transfer Tuesday in April – hope to see you there!”
Attendees will have an opportunity to speak with current students and alumni who transferred to Kendall College, as well as meet with the President, Deans and faculty. In addition, students can learn about financial assistance opportunities, speak to the Registrar about Kendall’s Military benefits and discuss credit transfers directly with the Admissions team.
Attendees should bring transcripts (official or un-official) from all previous colleges attended for accurate advising.
