Shimer College invites all students who are thinking of transferring to Shimer in the coming year to visit with Shimer for a day! The event will be held Friday, July 27. We will answer all your burning questions about transfer to Shimer, financial aid, and more. If you are able to submit your transcripts to us a few days in advance, we may be able to do an initial transfer credit evaluation for you as well. Please RSVP to Adrian Nelson, Admission Counselor (firstname.lastname@example.org, or 312-235-3549) if you plan on coming.
Transfer student Sarah Scalise has recently blogged about her experience on blog.shimer: "Transferring to Shimer College."
Many students transfer to Shimer from Harold Washington College (see also Dean Barbara Stone's recent letter in the Chronicle of Higher Education about this program). Previous accounts of that experience have been given by current student Ed Vlcek and 2012 graduate Kieran Kelley.
