"You may know that some opportunities exist but you don't even think that they are available to you, and in a way the Exploring Transfer program gives you the key to get to those doors and to actually open them." Y. Martin, PhD ______________________________________________________________________________________
"For thirty years, the Exploring Transfer (ET) program at Vassar College has successfully introduced community college students to the possibilities of transfer to a wide range of four-year colleges and universities. ET students all of whom are first generation to college, have gone on to complete bachelors degrees at colleges in the city and state university systems, and have also transferred and flourished at private selective higher education institutions….(Columbia University, Yale University, Middlebury College, Vassar etc.)
The program is designed to provide an introduction to the intensive study of the liberal arts to community college students who are pursuing associate degrees in vocational, liberal arts, or science programs. Indeed, most of our students come to the program with the kinds of vocational goals encouraged by community college admissions; it is our purpose to show them that there is a world of other possibilities available to them.
