Transferring from a community college to Stevenson was surprisingly smooth. The Psychology department was very welcoming and helpful. They told me exactly what courses would transfer and what courses I would need to take. I know that the professors here at Stevenson do care a lot about me and I feel very well-connected to them as well as my peers. Overall, I am super thankful for my professors and friends here at Stevenson. They have welcomed me with open arms and made this process easy and fun.

I transferred from CCBC this spring after completing a few semesters at their Essex campus. Prior to that, I was enrolled at a different university and working as a State Trooper. Once I realized that police work wasn’t for me, I joined the military. I became a medic in the military and found my passion for healthcare. During my time in the military I aspired to become more than a medic. This is when I decided I would go back to school and start on my path to becoming a Physician’s Assistant.

When I was at CCBC, I completed several night and online classes. I also decided to leave the military as active duty status and join the reserves. I am so glad that I have made the decision to transfer to Stevenson. Looking back, the choice was easy for me because of their participation in the Yellow Ribbon program, availability of transfer scholarship, and acceptance of my GI Bill.
Stevenson has everything I have been looking for at a university: small class sizes, flexible class schedules, veteran friendly, and not to mention, they have a beautiful campus. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to finish my Bachelor’s degree here before applying to Physician’s Assistant schools in the area. The professors here have been extremely supportive and would go above and beyond to help in any way they can. Stevenson is really giving me a wonderful opportunity to finish the degree I started almost 13 years ago.
