Here What Our Transfer Students Are Saying

I thought being a transfer student would feel awkward because I was a “new student” again. But that was not the case; I felt very welcomed by both staff and student body.

Tiffany Mendez

English & Communications Major

I am a full-time student, full-time employee, and full-time single mom. I had been very fearful of my transition to a University, but here I am among those I trust and who are not out for their own self-interest.

Octavia Yates

English & Communications Major

Upon receiving my acceptance letter from EWU, I was nothing but nervous embarking a new chapter in my life. Thankfully, all the staff and professors at EWU couldn't have made the transition any easier.

Carol Medina

Biology Major

Transferring to East-West University was the best decision I have made this year. I thought the transfer process was going to be long and stressful, but they made it very easy for me.
