A first year student is anyone applying for admissions who has never attended another college or university beyond high school graduation. If you completed college courses while in high school, you are still considered a first year student.
A transfer student is anyone applying for admission who has attended another college or university and has credits post-high school, at the time of application. If you are completing college courses while in high school you are considered a first year student and not a transfer student.

"California University of Pennsylvania has changed my life by opening my eyes to bigger and better opportunities. I have been given the chance to experience events that I never thought was possible. By working with our faculty close at hand to working with our incoming freshman I would never change the experiences that I have been given here at CALU."
