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.

For additional information about the transfer process, students are advised to contact the Registrar Office at  Thanks to multiple admission dates and a streamlined application process, taking the next step in your college education can happen today!  We look forward to hearing from you!
