Tips for Transfer Students

Transferring to a new college can be complicated, especially when each school has a different process. But at MCPHS, you don’t have to do it alone. Each year, we help more than 300 students transfer into the program of their choice. Whether you’re transferring from another school or pursuing a second degree, our faculty and staff are dedicated to helping you navigate the application and transition process.

Make a Transfer Admission Appointment

The best way to learn more about MCPHS is through a one-on-one Transfer Admission Appointment. At your Transfer Admission Appointment, you’ll have the opportunity to share your story, concerns, and professional goals. Your Transfer Counselor can help you avoid pitfalls by preparing a personalized road map for you. Building this road map will include:

  • Determining the right MCPHS campus and academic program for you.
  • Planning out coursework to take before you come to MCPHS, if needed.
  • Creating a personalized transfer credit evaluation.
  • Discussing criteria for merit scholarship.

Don’t forget to bring your official or unofficial transcripts to your appointment. Transfer Counselors can use these to discuss your transfer credits and entry into MCPHS.

Explore Our Campus

Following your one-on-one appointment with a Transfer Counselor, you’ll be invited on a tour of our campus. This experience will help you visualize your future as you get to know our Boston, Worcester, or Manchester communities.

Transfer students are also invited to attend an Open House, which occur during both the fall and spring semesters. Our Open Houses invite students to explore campus, meet MCPHS faculty and alumni, learn about affordability planning, and talk with current MCPHS students.

Meet Your MAC Team

MCPHS’s Center for Academic Success and Enrichment (CASE) provides academic support services that empower students to succeed. Through CASE, you’ll meet your MAC team, a small, personalized, and supportive academic team. These individuals will be directly connected to your academic program and fully equipped to understand your specific goals and needs.

Each member of the MAC team acts as a valuable resource. Faculty mentors are members of our faculty who offer support with program exploration, career planning, continuing education, and professional coaching. Academic coaches help navigate the academic challenges and transitions that appear along the journey toward becoming a healthcare professional. They also will facilitate access to professional resources and help you fortify your test-taking and self-management techniques.

In addition to the MAC team, upper-level students also serve as peer mentors and help make matriculating into MCPHS a smooth transition.

Visit the Center for Professional Career Development

The Center for Professional Career Development (CPCD) helps you develop and attain your professional goals.

The CPCD affords you access to industry-specific resources, professional advising, and hands-on professional experiences from the moment you step on campus. As a center built to help support your personal and professional goals, the CPCD also offers students job search training, entry to on-campus professional development events, and access to a global alumni network– so if you’re looking for an internship, summer job, or fellowship, the CPCD is the perfect place to start.
