        As a Transfer

        When I made the decision to transfer to Gannon University after my freshman year, I was not looking forward to the whole process of transferring credits, getting a schedule, and meeting new people. But Gannon honestly made that transition so simple. They transferred 31 out of 32 credits, and answered every question I had about my schedule. They made finishing my degree work for me, even when it really didn't work for them. I usually don't believe when people are all praise for something, but Gannon University is truly a very transfer friendly school.
