Thinking about Transferring to PhilaU?

admissions-default

We understand that students who are looking to transfer colleges, whether that be from a 2-year or 4-year school, have different questions than students coming to us straight from high school.

We take a very individualized approach to help each of our transfer students get their specific questions answered, so they canWhiteCornersSpring16Small ultimately decide what’s best for them. We start by having a team of transfer counselors who have experience working with students who have begun their academic careers elsewhere. We also offer specific transfer instant decision visits where you can meet with one of our transfer counselors, ask your questions, and find out – on the spot – if you are admissible.

Are you considering transferring? Let us help guide you through the process and see where we can help.

Are you accepted to PhilaU?

admissions-default

If you have been accepted to PhilaU, let me first of all say, “Congratulations! That’s awesome!”  Your hard work has paid off and you should take time to recognize and celebrate that accomplishment. Like I said, that is awesome.

So, now what?  Now, the fun begins…well, maybe not all fun, but definitely there is some fun to be had from now until move-in day. We have created a private, social network for just accepted students. If you haven’t joined already, I recommend you do that today. You can start to meet future classmates, join online groups with other people in your major or who share your similar interests…and you get to start the groups.  You can keep up-to-date with deadlines, happenings on campus, and upcoming chats/events. You can also meet possible roommates and find answers to questions you have about being a student at PhilaU. Sounds pretty fun, right?

Are you accepted to PhilaU? If so, you should have received an email invite to join the network, so go check that out and register today. If not, send an email to Kathy at Admiss@PhilaU.edu (kissanek null@null PhilaU NULL.edu) and request your invitation.

Winter Break helpful tips

admissions-default

That long awaited winter break is approaching and with a little planning, you can be going back to school in January more relaxed and feeling productive.  With college students home for their breaks too, visiting colleges won’t give you the best glimpse of the school, but there are some things you can do.

1) Finish your paperwork. Whether that be completing applications, getting all your supporting materials together or making your deposit.

2) Think FAFSA. The earlier you file, the better. Start getting all your information together now to make it a smooth process. If you file prior to March 1, you will be eligible for our $1000 Early Filer Award.

3) Set up a semester visit.

4) If you are a junior, register for the spring SATs, register for a spring visit and keep your grades up.

5) Most importantly, take some time to relax and enjoy your winter break!

All of us at Philadelphia University wish you much peace and happiness during the holiday season and in the new year!
