Suggested Steps if you’re thinking about SIU transfer

1. Schedule appointment to meet with onsite Program Advisor. Forward your

transcripts – unofficial is fine for this purpose (before the appointment if

possible) to the onsite Advisor from each college where previous coursework

was completed or attempted. Do this as early as possible in your college

career – do not wait! You may save valuable time and wasted effort.

2. During appointment, review results of unofficial assessment of prior work,

and formulate transfer plan together to meet your goals.

3. Complete Admissions Application at least 1 semester before your intended

transfer.

SIU’s B.S. in Aviation Management has been a very popular program here at

Palomar for many years. Your higher education goals are important to us, and

we want to accommodate your needs – it is important to remain in contact with

the onsite advisor to make this happen.

Once you are admitted and enrolled in the program attendance is very important

to your success. Each seated course runs 3 weekends, and then the next seated

course starts. This is year-round, spanning 16 months, 4 semesters (spring,

summer, & fall). Each seated course is in rotation, and is only offered once every

16 months. This is an important consideration. You must be able to dedicate your

weekends, Saturdays and Sundays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:50 p.m. every other

weekend with some back-to-back weekends, in addition to homework of course.

Not only do we offer excellent aviation management focused courses, but we

often fly in our instructors every weekend from around the nation. They are

experts in their field and course topic. You will receive an exceptional, quality

academic experience.

We look forward to meeting with each of you and care about your success.
