Randolph College announced a new program this week that will provide students with an easier—and faster—way to transfer or enter college.
Under the new plan, students will be able to enroll for the beginning of Session 2, which starts Oct. 23. Most colleges make students wait until the next semester to transfer or enroll. Randolph’s new program meets the needs of students who want to start college now.
“Because of the innovation of TAKE2, Randolph’s curriculum model, students here take two classes at a time for seven weeks,” said Gary Dop, dean of innovation. “The uniqueness of this method allows us to offer this unusual enrollment option for students.”
Students taking advantage of the program will pay less than $1,000 for Session 2 if they are commuters. Students planning to live on campus will pay about $4,000.
The deadline to apply for this program is Oct. 11. Once you apply, Randolph will fast-track your application and financial aid process.
“We want to make Randolph as accessible and affordable as possible in order to open this enriching experience to more students,” said Sue Ott Rowlands, president. “Not only does TAKE2 make us distinctive in the higher ed environment, it allows us added flexibility in situations like this. This year, Randolph welcomed the largest incoming class in six years. It’s an exciting time to be here, and we want to make this amazing education possible for as many students as possible.”
TAKE2 was launched two years ago and has already brought significant results. Faculty and students report higher test scores, improved writing, better attendance, and a deeper understanding of material. In fact, the College has seen more students on the Dean’s List under TAKE2 than it has for 10 years.
“We offer an extraordinary, affordable educational experience that is designed to meet the needs of today’s students,” said Travis Carter, dean of admission and financial aid. “Creating this new transfer and new student pipeline for Session 2 only adds to what we already offer. It’s a great opportunity for students who are ready to transfer and don’t want to wait a semester or students who delayed entering college for some reason.”
