Are You Looking For an Affordable College? Bramson ORT College Welcomes All Transfer Students

The importance of a high quality, affordable college experience cannot be emphasized enough, particularly in the context of today’s competitive economy. Because of this, the faculty and administrative staff at Bramson ORT have created a flexible and welcoming environment for transfer students who have been disappointed or frustrated by their previous college choices, or are simply looking for change! In keeping with Bramson ORT’s mission to offer an outstanding education at affordable prices, transfer students who have decided to continue their education here can quickly begin the process of transferring their pre-existing college credit to Bramson ORT.

Understanding the Credit Transfer Process

In order to ensure that students are able to maximize their credit transfers, it’s important to first clarify who exactly qualifies for transfer status at Bramson ORT. Transfer students are commonly defined as those who have previously attended a degree-granting, post-secondary institution. Common examples of transfer students and their backgrounds include:

     Students who are changing their degree program and seeking an institution better suited to their desired profession.
     Students who, for whatever reason, have been forced to relocate geographically.

There are no immediate disqualifications for classes or degree programs, although the actual number of credits transferred is determined through an analysis of previous college transcripts. During the initial registration process, students can request a preliminary evaluation of their prior coursework in order to learn which of the classes they have already taken can be rolled over into their new degree track. Credit can only be transferred from institutions that have been accredited by a regional accrediting commission.

Students who are interested in transferring credit to Bramson ORT are asked to provide these materials during Admissions Process:

     Official copies of previous transcripts.
     An official course description for each class being transferred.

Transfer Credit Requirements

Bramson ORT makes every effort to ensure that transfer students receive as much qualifying transfer credit as possible during the registration process. Course credits are deemed fit for transfer if they are equivalent in content and credit weight to classes offered at Bramson ORT. Once a suitable match has been found, students will be given the matching transfer credit if they have received a grade of ‘C’ or better in the previous course. If a student is seeking to transfer credit for a course that is required for successful completion of their degree, they must have completed the previous course within a five-year period prior to enrollment at Bramson ORT.

After a transfer request has been made, the Office of the Dean of Academic Services will review each student’s course selections and academic history in order to ensure that the best possible outcome is achieved.

Our Commitment to Transfer Students

Ultimately, these requirements have been put into place in order to ensure that students who do transfer to Bramson ORT are fully prepared to succeed in their new environment. Anyone who has ever transferred to a new university understands how stressful this process can be. The faculty and staff at Bramson ORT have worked with countless transfer students throughout the past several years in order to ensure that they have the best possible opportunities to set themselves up for future academic success!

Make a Fresh Start at Bramson ORT

Education truly is the gateway to success in today’s global economy.  Regardless of what your previous academic experiences may have been, the faculty and staff at Bramson ORT are eager to help you get back on track!  Thanks to a number of accelerated degree programs and affordable tuition, transfer students can quickly begin the process of completing their degree and entering their desired profession.

Bramson ORT College
69-30 Austin Street, Forest Hills, Queens NY
(718) 261-5800 / (718) 259-5300

Students enrolled in a four year college program often feel overwhelmed by the course load and the commitment that is required in order to fulfill their degree requirements. Additionally, students enrolled in a overly populated college tend to miss out on the personal experience that smaller schools bring. Since the transition from high school to college is not always simple, and since students are often not ready to commit to an extended program at such a young age, here at Bramson ORT College, we have made it our priority to create an environment where students can obtain a professional degree in an intimate setting in a shorter amount of time.

As you are reading this, are you nodding your head in agreement with the fact that your current college isn't exactly what you're looking for? Do you feel like you don't get the attention you deserve from your professors? Then it's time for you to start considering other schools!

Study Tips For Final Exams

Bramson ORT College
69-30 Austin Street, Forest Hills, Queens NY
(718) 261-5800 / (718) 259-5300
Although this time of year is full of holiday excitement and cheer, for college students, it's also full of late night study sessions and final exams. And since the holidays make for busy schedules due to family get-togethers and other holiday happenings, finding the time to study and study right can be difficult.

At Bramson ORT College, it is our hope that all of our students do exceptionally well on their final exams this year. That's why thanks to Fastweb!, we've put together a list of study tips to help you get through this stressful time of year. Check them out below!
  1. Ask Questions: Before your final class is held, make sure you ask your professor all of your questions! After all, they know what is going to be on the exam, so if there are topics you are still unsure about, it would be in your best interest to bring them up. Chances are, other students in your class have similar concerns too.
  2. Make A Guide: Although flipping through your notebook is easy, it can also be overwhelming when studying. Instead, create a separate study guide that focuses only on the main ideas you need to know for the exam. Then, when you have time, glance over any extra material not covered so that you have a basic understanding of what's left.
  3. Test Yourself: What better way to prepare for an exam than by asking yourself potential questions? As you go through the material, take a minute to quiz yourself and ask yourself questions that you suspect your teacher will include. 
  4. Know The Style: Always keep the style of the test in mind. For example, if it is going to be multiple choice format, then it's likely that you'll need to know definitions and how to apply certain concepts to situations. However, if your exam is to be an essay, then you'll want to prepare examples that pertain to the material.
  5. Pace Yourself: It can be easy to rush through the material if you know you have a lot to study for, but rushing will only hurt you. Rather than speed through your notes in a frenzy, remain calm and take your time; you may even find that creating a study schedule helps you get things done in a more timely fashion.
In addition to these tips, don't forget to get enough rest leading up to the exam. Staying up all night will make it much harder for you to focus at the time when you need to most!

Are you in the middle of preparing for final exams? If you're struggling with any of the material you're required to know, be sure to stop by the Bramson ORT College tutoring center! Our tutoring center staff would be more than happy to go over different concepts with you to ensure that you're fully prepared for the big day. To fill out a tutor request form, visit us in person or click here.

Good luck students!
