Transfers and Direct Entries

Students who wish to transfer to Glion from other schools and continue their studies will need to demonstrate the credit and work experience achieved. Through providing academic transcripts and work certificates Glion can then evaluate that the standards achieved are comparable to the requirements of the specific Glion program of study.
