When transferring to Siena, you can expect a simple process, transfer credits, transition into Saint life and at least $28K in scholarships. 

This is all thanks to the genuine community vibe at Siena and the Siena Transfer Guarantee, making the switch to Siena as easy and exciting as possible for transfer students like Marley Buffis.  

Marley transferred to Siena from Emmanuel College in Boston for the beginning of her sophomore year. She is a Management major and plans on working at a law firm or a money management company after graduation in 2023. 

Meet Marley! (And if you want to chat with her one-on-one, let us know.)

Tell us a little about your decision to transfer. 

Siena and Emmanuel were my top two choices. I chose Emmanuel as it was in the city and I grew up in a small town and wanted a change. I then learned very fast that I did not like the city at all. I also had ended up switching majors and I knew Siena has a really strong business program. I also wanted to be closer to home and had friends here who loved it. 

Did you have any hesitations about transferring to Siena? 

I did not have any hesitations about transferring to Siena. I knew that I wanted to go here as soon as I did not like the city and changed majors. 

How was the transfer process? Be honest! 

I honestly could not have been happier with the transfer process here! Jen Sloan was the first person I talked to at Siena when I came to go on a tour again. She was so informative and welcoming! Transferring can be very stressful but having someone like Jen to always be answering your emails and checking in was great for the process and still great being at the school now! She cares a lot about what she does and that is very clear to us as transfers. 

In addition, the admissions staff was so helpful, and receiving little gifts in the mail was exciting as well. I really have no complaints at all about the transfer process itself with Siena. 

What's your advice for students considering transferring to Siena? Advice for the process, but also for once they start here?

For the process: if you have any questions, just email the admissions team. There are so many people ready and willing to help! Once you start: being involved is the best way to make friends that are interested in the same things as you. 

Glad you transferred?! How's it been going?

I am SO happy I transferred here, even during Covid. I met so many amazing people and have learned so much since transferring here less than a year ago.

Thinking about transferring, too?
