For over twenty years, the Exploring Transfer Program has given community college students the chance to live and learn at Vassar College. In addition to rigorously preparing students for transfer to four-year institutions, the program provides students with a stimulating experience that enables them to decide if they would prefer to attend a challenging four-year liberal arts college. Correspondingly, students participating in the Exploring Transfer Program are immersed in an academically intensive five-week program, designed to foster the type of intellectual growth for which Vassar is known. Each student takes two Vassar courses at the 100-level, which are team-taught by a Vassar professor and a community college professor; lives on the Vassar campus, in dormitory housing; and takes meals in the campus dining halls. Vassar covers the cost of the courses, housing, food and books. In return, the program asks that students come with an eagerness to learn and a desire to challenge themselves academically, transcending boundaries previously thought possible.
