Direct Transfer Partnership

Direct Transfer Partnership can be standalone or added to a Channel Enrollment Partnership. As a Direct Transfer partner, you provide a direct pathway for students who complete a Verto semester to gain admission to your institution using their Verto grades as the foundation of their application. Students are invited to apply to your college pending their demonstrated commitment to academic excellence—via requirements you set—while on their Verto semester.

Channel Enrollment Partnership

In addition to matching right-fit Verto students to your college or university, Channel Enrollment partnership allows you to offer waitlisted or denied students another way forward.
