Information for Transfer Students

Are you a Transfer Student to Marlboro Interested in Doing the World Studies Program?

Good news!  Transfer students are eligible to be WSP students!  In fact, we typically have a few students every year who transfer into the Marlboro WSP program from other institutions.  

Students transferring in should speak to Chelsea Ferrell and Jamie Tanner as soon as possible to discuss how they intend to fulfill program requirements.  Please note that students may be able to waive a WSP requirement if they have done comparable course work elsewhere.

Sample Timeline* for a 2-Year Transfer WSP Student:

 Third Year
