Prescott College is Part of Verto’s Direct Transfer Program
Through Verto’s Direct Transfer Program, you can gain admission to Prescott based on your academic performance with the courses delivered by the Academic Provider during your Verto study abroad experience. While admission will depend on Prescott’s availability and is ultimately up to their discretion, this route tends to give Verto participants who meet the college’s academic criteria a higher chance of admission and a fast-tracked application.
Students who enjoy their Verto semester(s) will thrive at Prescott College. All of our students learn in the field, and they co-create their degree plans with faculty who engage, guide, and mentor. And by pursuing an accelerated master’s degree, they can learn to make a living while they make a difference.
