Written By: Kristin Kellams Vanguard University Transfer Program

When looking to make the transfer to a university, figuring out what school is right for you can be daunting. Vanguard University in Costa Mesa is hosting an adult-degree completion information night Thursday, June 28 at 6 p.m. at the OC Fairgrounds to walk you through it all. They offer professional studies degrees in business, psychology and religion. Vanguard was founded in 1920 and their goal is to equip students for a spirit-empowered life of leadership and service. It has also been named one of the top 10 best baccalaureate colleges in the west by US News & World Report. They have a strong commitment to students and strive to make it easy to balance education with real life responsibilities.

“I was feeling stuck where I was in my life and knew I needed to go back to school and immerse myself in learning and finding my true purpose,” Lorena Vasquez Hoffman ’15, Registered Marriage and Family Therapist, says. “My experience at Vanguard was life-changing. The professors, staff and faculty truly care about the success of their students which motivated and inspired me to reach deep into my heart and soul and do the best work I could during my time there. It was the best decision I made to attend a school that is attentive and supportive of your goals,” she continues. “Vanguard inspired me to continue my education in psychology in graduate school and paved the way for a fruitful life of service.”

If this professional studies program sounds like a good fit for you, be sure to attend their upcoming information night where you will be able to meet the dean, faculty and staff while enjoying refreshments and appetizers. There will be staff on hand to answer all your questions about financial aid and the admissions process, and you can also maximize your transfer credits with on-site transcript guidance. And did we mention it’s free to attend? They’re also giving away two Samsung tablets just for attending! Another perk? All attendees will have the $45 application fee waived!

It can be hard to balance work and life while attending college. Vanguard University provides an environment where students can thrive and pursue their dreams by offering flexible class schedules, which are perfect for working professionals. “The program has really opened my eyes to a different side of education that I never had before. I would 100 percent recommend this program to anyone out there,” Ben Briggs ’16, owner of Hidden House Coffee Roasters, says. “Prior to my business career, I was in the Marine Corps and learned a totally different skill set. With the different experiences in life that I have encountered, it is refreshing to find a school program where I can use all my experiences. This program has encouraged me, challenged me and pushed me to want to be better in my business life, as well as my faith,” he added.

Not many universities offer this kind of flexibility, which results in many students dropping out or not being able to keep up with class schedules and workloads. Vanguard’s priority is to make it as easy as possible for their students to be able to stay on track with both life and educational responsibilities. They really want you to succeed!

82 percent of Vanguard University’s professional studies students receive financial aid, so if finances are holding you back from continuing your education, you can rest knowing that they’ll work hard to facilitate making your education affordable.

Make this event the next step toward your future!
