Transfer Program

Information for Special Program Transfer Students

The SEEK Transfer Program provides participants with academic and counseling assistance that facilitate the process of transfer students' transition into John Jay College.  During Transfer Orientation, transfer students have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the campus and the different kinds of opportunities that are available to them as a new student transitioning into John Jay College. The college’s academic policies and graduation requirements are reviewed to build the connections around academic advisement, selection of a major and registering for courses.

The goals of the SEEK Transfer Program are:

  • To integrate participants into John Jay College.
  • To ensure that transfer students understand the College's policies and SEEK Program policies.
  • To review the college’s graduation, and requirements for the continued receipt of Financial Aid, as it pertains to the transfer student population
  • To provide participants with Counseling, Academic Support services, Financial Aid and Career Support services
