Roberts Welcomes Alliance Students

Main content

It's probably been a stressful few months for you, and we want to help make the transition from Alliance University to Roberts Wesleyan University super easy. What is important to you is important to us - keeping you on time to graduate with the degree you've been working toward.

Let's Get Started!

First things first. Kristen Nielsen is your first point of contact at Roberts. As the Executive Director for Undergraduate Admissions, Kristen will ensure you get the information you need and can get to the right person to pursue your program completion, whether associates, bachelors, masters, or doctoral. You can call her at 585-594-6562, text her at 585-902-2917, or you can email her at nielsen_kristen@roberts.edu if you prefer!

Start Your Transfer Now!

If you are a degree-completion or graduate student in Organizational Management, Business Administration, Clinical Social Work Practice, or Leadership in Organizations and Communities, complete the Alliance Teach-Out application on this page, and then request your official Alliance transcript to be sent to admissions!

Good news: We will match or reduce your out-of-pocket costs as part of the Teach-Out program!

If you filed the 2023-2024 FAFSA, please add Roberts school code 002805 to your school's list. And send your 2022-23 Alliance financial aid award letter to Kristen so he can connect with Student Financial Services on your behalf.
