Spend your first semester of college traveling the world.

Through Verto you can take a semester (or year) to figure out who you are and see the world while earning general education credits. When you are accepted into Verto, you are simultaneously accepted into at least one of Verto’s partner schools with a guaranteed slot for admission in the following spring or fall. That way you don’t have to worry about applying to college or transferring credits when you get back.

Even better, Verto was designed to give students the opportunity to see new countries while graduating in four years at the same cost, if not less, than your typical semester of college. We’ve designed a program where traveling actually saves you money.

No application fee, college admission within weeks, freshman year abroad, guaranteed scholarship

With Verto, get a:

  • Faster college admissions answer (for free)
  • More affordable freshman year
  • Semester or year abroad with full credit

Enrollment into the Verto Global Scholars Program before November 15 results in an automatic $1,000 scholarship toward their degree. Students can confirm their eligibility by applying today.
