Join a community of dreamers and doers. 

Stephens College has always been student-focused and that includes working one-on-one with transfer students to ensure a seamless transition into our programming and community.

We work closely with transfer students to evaluate credits, making sure students are able to transfer the maximum credit hours. Faculty advisers work with transfer students immediately to create advising plans.
