How to Apply for Admission

At Albertus, we understand that transfer students may be facing different obstacles than first-time freshmen. We will work with you to develop a plan that serves your needs, taking into consideration the fact that you have been to an institution in the past. Your past experiences are significant because they led you here.

For information on transfer credits, visit our articulation agreements page.
