How is the HBCU transfer portal experience for 2023?

Okay, so I'm considering transferring to an HBCU next year. I wanted to ask if anyone here has used the HBCU transfer portal for 2023, and what your experience was like? Was it straightforward, and did it help you find a better fit or improve your college experience?

Hey there! My son recently went through the transfer process to an HBCU and found the transfer portal to be quite intuitive. The steps were laid out neatly, which made it clear what he needed to do at every stage. In his case, making sure he had all his transcripts and recommendation letters in order was key. He did mention that staying on top of deadlines was crucial, so definitely mark your calendar.

As for the outcome, he's very happy with his decision. I've noticed a significant improvement in his academic enthusiasm and overall college experience since he transferred. Plus, the sense of community he's found at the HBCU has been invaluable.

If you're looking to transfer, my main advice would be to start gathering your materials early and reach out to the admissions offices if you have any questions—they were very helpful in my son's experience. Good luck!
