Transfer Process


Meet Your Counselor

Loren Morgan

Loren Morgan

Hi! My name is Loren Morgan, and I am Albright's Transfer Coordinator. I encourage you to peruse the transfer website, as it has lots of useful information to assist you in the transfer process.

If you are considering transferring to Albright, I suggest you make an appointment to visit the College and speak with me about the transfer process. When you visit campus, bring a copy of your transcript and I can tell you what courses will transfer.

Albright has a number of transfer agreements with community colleges, and we have Transfer Equivalency Guides online for many of these.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me by email at transfer@albright.edu or by phone at (800) 252-1856.

Academic Advising

Your faculty advisor will initially meet with you to select courses and to discuss career goals. He or she will help you explore Albright's unusually flexible curriculum - options that range from the Alpha Program for students undecided about choosing a major to opportunities for combining majors and career internships.

You will meet regularly with your faculty advisor, and you should not hesitate to meet with her/him whenever you have questions or concerns.


Housing

On-campus housing is guaranteed at Albright. We offer many housing options, including North Hall special interest "suites," a popular choice for small groups of transfer students in their second year at Albright. You will feel equally at home in any of our other residence halls.


Transfer Student Orientation

All new students enjoy a four-day orientation program prior to the start of the fall semester. Transfer students are placed together in one orientation group.

Transfers may skip sessions that address adjustment to college life in general. There are, however, many other events designed to acquaint transfers with Albright's campus and the more than 80 student-run organizations.

Spring semester orientation is a shortened version of fall orientation.

"I enjoyed Albright's transfer student orientation so much that I became involved as an orientation leader the following year. Here, transfers receive individual attention. They're not left to become lost in the crowd."
