University of Dayton is Part of Verto’s Direct Transfer Program

Through Verto’s Direct Transfer Program, you can gain admission to University of Dayton based on your academic performance with the courses delivered by the Academic Provider during your Verto study abroad experience. While admission will depend on University of Dayton’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.

Learn About Verto’s Direct Transfer Program

The benefits of education abroad are profound, diverse and lifelong. While attending a Verto program, students are exposed to life-changing experiences that help them have a more clear vision of what they want to study and the careers they eventually want to pursue. We believe that is critical for positive outcomes.
