Make the Most of Your Winter Break

That long awaited winter break is approaching and with a little planning, you can be going back to school in January more relaxed and feeling productive.  With college students home for their breaks too, visiting colleges won’t give you the best glimpse of the school, but there are some things you can do.

1) Finish your paperwork. Whether that be completing applications, getting all your supporting materials together or making your deposit.

2) Think FAFSA. The earlier you file, the better. Start getting all your information together now to make it a smooth process.

3) Do more research on the schools you are considering. Check out their school social media, both official and unofficial and see how the students are living.

4) If you are a junior, register for the spring SATs, register for a spring visit and keep your grades up.

5) Most importantly, take some time to relax and enjoy your winter break!

All of us at Philadelphia University wish you much peace and happiness during the holiday season and in the new year!

Calling all Day, Undergraduate Spring 2015 Transfer Students!

Wouldn’t you love to have your decision made before the winter holidays?

We understand that transferring to another college can be both exciting and stressful. At PhilaU, our goal is to make it as seamless and stress free as possible for you.

This month we are holding several Instant Decision Days where you can get an admissions decision on the spot. Just register for one of dates, bring in your completed application and all your supporting materials and you’ll be all set. (Please note: this is for all day, undergraduate Spring 2015 transfer students. Unfortunately, due to portfolio reviews, we cannot give instant decisions to students transferring into the Architecture and Fashion Design programs.)

To find out more information and to register, just click here.

If you have any questions, please free to call the Office of Admissions at 215.951.2800 and ask to speak with your Admissions Counselor.
