entrancebanners.jpgWelcome back to the Hood College Counselor Connection! We hope that you had a relaxing holiday weekend and that you are enjoying a productive summer.

As the fall semester quickly approaches, we are continuing to accept and evaluate transfer applications for Fall 2017 admission. Applications can be submitted at http://www.hood.edu/apply/, and classes will begin on Aug. 21. On-campus housing is available for transfer students, and we offer a variety of meal plans for both residential and commuter students.

Students are encouraged to schedule a visit at our campus in Frederick, MD to learn more about the transfer application process. Please explore the links in the sidebar for additional information about transfer-specific events and visits.

All transfer applicants who indicate that they will be enrolling as full-time students are automatically considered for renewable merit scholarships at the time of admission. This year, Hood is offering three levels of merit scholarship awards for full-time transfer students:

  • Leader’s Award – 40% of tuition

  • Trailblazer Award – 33% of tuition

  • Recognition Award – 25% of tuition

For more information about transfer admission, please contact Cheryl Banks (banks@hood.edu; 301-696-3354) or Erin Botker (botker@hood.edu; 301-696-3813). We look forward to hearing from you and your students!
