The Exploring Transfer Program at Vassar College

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.

Interested students should visit the Associate Provost Office in M386 for more information.

The Vassar Exploring transfer program is the most rigorous environment that I have ever experienced yet; the lessons I have learned could only spring from being challenged and gaining necessary skills in the world of academia. I have met wonderful lifelong friends throughout the program and you literally create a family while you are living on campus. Living on campus is a valuable experience especially to us community college students who constantly run in and out of class and may sometimes miss out on valuable in depth college life with classmates. I was completely blown away by the types of novels and articles that we read because the classes were synthesized in a unique and penetrating way to make you analyze everything. I will recommend this program to any student who wants to be challenged in different ways and is open to experiencing an elite liberal arts college for free!
