This is What Transfer Students Need to Know

What Is A Transfer Student?

Transfer Students

 

A transfer student is anyone who wants to enroll in the ABC Apprenticeship and Craft Training Program and has previously attended a 2 or 4 year institution of higher learning.

To be considered for admission as a transfer student, you are required to submit documented evidence of such additional experience or training.

Those with military experience can take an advanced placement assessment to evaluate knowledge and skills.  This is a measurable way to determine which level of the program is the best starting point for the individual.
