How does the
Direct Transfer Program Work?
Earn guaranteed admission to Verto’s Direct Transfer Partner Colleges through Verto’s free Partner Application.

Each Direct Transfer Partner has specific requirements for students to earn guaranteed admission through their Verto experience. If a college sparks your interest, but you’re worried about meeting their requirements for the Direct Transfer Guarantee, don’t be discouraged. While these partners offer conditional admission by meeting their specific Direct Transfer requirements, many also conduct a holistic and comprehensive review of applicants. Colleges are always looking to identify academically promising students who enhance their campus communities.
