1. You’ll Get the Support You Need

You’ll be supported every step of the way at Viterbo. We have a Transfer Transition Program that is designed to provide our new transfer students with resources to aid in a smooth transition to Viterbo University.  Our advisors will help you explore your academic major, get more information about Viterbo services, and connect you with a peer mentor to aid in your successful transition to Viterbo.

2. Credits Transfer Easily 

Viterbo works with several technical colleges and universities to offer a seamless transfer of credits when transferring to Viterbo. We accept most, if not all, of your credits so you can transition right into upper-level classes when you start. This transfer articulation agreement helps to save you both money and time while completing your bachelor’s degree.

Our students will be the first to tell you their professors really care. Viterbo faculty want their students to succeed, and that means they’re available outside the classroom to answer your questions. They’ll get to know you and your goals, and they’ll help you reach them.  

4. There’s So Much to Experience 

Viterbo offers many clubs, collegiate sports teams, music and theatre programs, and opportunities to lead research projects, get a paid internship, and more!
