"Transforming Lives Through Quality Learning Experiences"

ASU-Beebe

What is a Transfer Trip?

Transfer Trips provide a unique learning experience for prospective transfer students to visit with regional four-year schools and gain valuable information and resources about the transfer process and options at that transfer school.

These trips allow students to meet with four-year school representatives to learn about the admissions process, scholarships available, cost of attendance, academic programs, campus life and culture, residence life, geography, and much more to help participants determine if that school is the best fit for them. 

Who is eligible to participate?

Transfer Trips are open to currently enrolled prospective transfer students.
