Making the overwhelming easier!

College Transfer Students

At College Planning 101, we thoroughly understand the college transfer process. We use the same Student Positioning Program for our college transfer students as we do for high school students. This program is designed to help students find colleges based on social, academic, and financial compatibility.

Student positioning also helps families qualify for need-based and/or merit money from colleges. The more merit and need-based money your child receives, the less their student loan payments will be upon graduation. We also put students through a personality assessment that guides them towards the career(s) that is best suited for their interests.

The philosophy of “Student Positioning” was developed in response to the rising cost of higher education and the increasing use of enrollment management principles. When students attend colleges that are a social, academic, and financial fit, they are happier AND more likely to graduate on time.
Are you unhappy with your college choice? Are you struggling academically? Are you suffering from a lacking social life? You are not alone! Nearly 20% of college students transfer to another school. We can help show you your options.


As soon as a student voices concern about their college choice, we’re ready to get to work. For our long-distance students we can speak on the phone or video for the initial consultation.

Having College Planning 101 as an asset through our school search has been nothing but amazing. Thanks to Stephanie and her coworkers, what should've been the most stressful and nerve racking part of growing up became a walk in the park. Sure, we had to play our part, but every step of the way and every question, no matter how simple, she was there. From the bottom of our hearts we really cannot thank them enough, and without a doubt recommend their services.

We started with the College Planning 101 staff in 2014 with my daughter being a Junior in High School. In every aspect that she needed guidance and help each one of them was there for her. It made things less stressful for us. As my daughter had questions throughout college and literally after getting her masters degree the team has still been there for her! Thank you College Planning 101 for being so professional, patient, courteous and also still there for her!!!

Stephanie has taken so much of the stress out of the process of not only finding and applying to colleges, but also figuring out payment and scholarship options. Without her help my dad and I would've been completely lost. Not only did she provide guidance before I even began applying to colleges, she also continues to be of aid every year when it came time to fill out the FAFSA and apply for financial aid. She quite literally has helped my dad and I save thousands of dollars throughout the entire process in realistic and doable ways. Paying for college can be extremely stressful, Stephanie has absolutely helped in making it less so.
