    Why are students transferring?

    Advertisements



    Can anyone give me some specific insight as to why students are transferring from Xavier to Aureus. I have been hearing about this so much but havent been able to find out exactly why. Please let me know and I thank you in advance for your answers.

    Xavier doesn't have very many core rotation seats available and they make you pay thousands of dollars while waiting for spots to open, which is a little disingenuous. About a year to a year and a half ago, the director of Aureus Baltimore rotations, Dr. Scott asked his Xavier transfers to tell more Xavier students to come (because Aureus students in Aruba weren't passing the step 1), and so, many people began transferring and rotating in Baltimore. They keep transferring even though there are significantly more students than rotations available.

    Transferring from one college to another can be a path to success. Here are five tips for making it work for you.

    Making a Successful Transfer
    If you are looking to change schools, here are five things you can do to make the process successful:

    1. Check into academic credits as early as possible. Don't show up at your new school assuming all your previous academic credits will be accepted. Schools have very subjective standards about this, and it's best to check with any potential new school about how much of your college credit they will accept before you make a commitment. In fact, if you are embarking on a two-plus-two program, you may want to research how widely accepted the first school's credits are before you even start. Also, after transferring, beware of inadvertently taking courses that are considered duplicates of those you took at your prior school, because you may not get full credit if you do.

    2. Make sure affordable housing can be arranged. Don't assume finding suitable housing, either on- or off-campus, is a given. Try not to commit to a transfer until you are sure you have lined up a housing arrangement you can live with.

    3. Target colleges that are accommodating to transfers. Some colleges rarely accept transfers, and many make no special effort to integrate them into their new surroundings. Look for schools with programs like special orientation sessions for transfers.

    4. Identify your reasons for transferring. Before you decide to change, write down your reasons for wanting to transfer. This can help you come to terms with whether the current school is the real problem, and it can also help you choose a school that represents a meaningful difference.

    5. Commit. It's perfectly fine to make a change, but once you do, commit to making it work. If you start hopping from college to college every year or so, you may find the path to a degree getting longer and more twisted. You also might find out that the schools aren't the real problem.

    Due to some good career opportunities. Better institutions with highly qualified faculties.But it increases study cost and normal student cannot bear it.
    Do the hard part first

    so here are some of the reason why xavier students are transferring to Aureus.
    1. Only those students are transferring that have failed. because xavier does not have favouritism program in effect, Where as Aureus accepts students from Xavier and to make their school look gud, these students are cleared from course despite that they have failed.

    sure from one student, second student hears and transfers out. Yeah for mean time, it's looking gud on Aureus side, but long- run are they doing any good to you as a student.

    You should really look into all the pro's and cons before switching over. Time, money and effort play a big role.
