Both the Fredericksburg campus and the Locust Grove campus have counselors who are designated as the central source of information on transfer. Plan to meet with them early on in your Germanna program to ensure that you can transfer painlessly to a four-year school. The Transfer Counselors can help you think about what you want from a four-year school, identify colleges that offer your intended major, plan your Germanna classes around four-year school requirements, and refer you to an admissions counselor at a four-year college who becomes your point of contact when you have questions.
A College Tour is scheduled annually in October. Over 50 four-year schools attend and give you an opportunity to meet with representatives. Workshops are also scheduled to help you learn what you need to know before you transfer.
Many four-year schools also come to Germanna to meet with you individually for transfer advising sessions or to staff information tables. Some even give you an admission decision on the spot.
