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.

After Verto, Your Next Stop is Loyola University New Orleans

Loyola University New Orleans is a Catholic, Jesuit university, located in the heart of the picturesque Uptown neighborhood in New Orleans.

For more than 100 years, Loyola has helped shape the lives of our students, as well as the history of our city and the world, through educating men and women in the Jesuit traditions of academic excellence and service to others. We provide our students with internships that enable them to acquire the real-world experience and competitive edge that employers seek as they become part of a global network of Jesuit universities and more than 1 million alumni.
