Transfer and Scholarship Essay Workshops 

Check the monthly Writing Center Workshop Calendar for dates and times. 

Transfer Essay: Expectations: Students will learn what admissions departments look for and how to write an essay that will catch attention.

Creating a Topic and Developing Paragraphs (Getting Started on Your Transfer Essay): Create a workable topic that will speak clearly about you and that will lead to a fully developed essay.

Refining your Final Draft: Participants will use a consultative process to refine and further develop essays. They will also learn strategies for correcting grammar and punctuation.

Transfer Essay "Jam Session" Covers the elements taught in the other 2 workshops (Expectations  plus Topic and Development).

Crafting and Polishing the Transfer or Scholarship Essay will get you started or help you complete these essays.

Suggestion for Transfer Applicants: For refining your final draft, we recommend you schedule an individual tutoring appointment.
