Verto’s Direct Transfer Pathway

Verto is extremely proud to partner with 65+ forward-thinking colleges and universities—enabling students to see the world and gain meaningful life experience before seamlessly transferring their Verto credits to an amazing 4-year school.

Our partner schools understand the transformative impact of a Verto education on student development and college readiness. So much so, that a selection of colleges offer Verto students the opportunity to use the grades from their Verto semester as criteria for admission!

There are Two Ways to be Admitted to Partner
Schools With Verto

  1. Pre-admission: Gain admission to partner schools based on your high school transcripts and Verto Application. Typically students complete this process before leaving for their Verto semester. You can learn more about this process on our general Partner School Admissions page.
  2. Direct Transfer: Gain admission to partner colleges based on your academic performance during your Verto Semester. While admission will depend on the partner college’s availability and is ultimately up to their discretion, this route tends to give Verto students who meet the college’s academic criteria (listed below) a higher chance of admission and a fast-tracked application.

Whether you’re confident in your high school grades and ready to move forward with college applications today, or want to have more time to demonstrate your potential before you make a decision, Verto has a path for you.

No matter which route you choose, your Verto credits will transfer seamlessly to our world-class partner colleges.

How to Gain College Admission through Verto’s Direct Transfer Pathway

By successfully completing a Verto semester (or two) and meeting the requirements of specific partner schools, you’ll be able to utilize your Verto semester grades as the foundation of your application and improve your chances for admission.

This program is available ONLY to first time college applicants. Acceptance to a Direct Transfer partner also depends on the capacity an institution has at any given time. Disclaimer: All Verto partners have ultimate discretion in all admissions decisions.

The requirements for review of your Direct Transfer application, determined by each school, include:

    • Meeting a minimum cumulative GPA on your Verto transcript.
    • Earning a minimum number of Verto credits.
    • Program/major availability
    • Maintaining good standing while on your Verto semester, which includes personal, behavioral, and academic integrity.
    • Note: If a student has a disciplinary record, the Verto partner will review their application holistically.
