The American University of Rome is a direct transfer partner of Verto Education. AUR offers admission to Verto participants who meet our outlined eligibility requirements. This unique opportunity provides a global, transformative learning experience designed to help you begin your college journey on a high note.


During your Verto experience, you’ll need to fulfill the following minimum requirements to gain transfer admission at AUR through our Direct Transfer Guarantee.

  • 2.8 GPA 
  • 1 semester 
  • 12 credits.


What programs are not covered by the Direct Transfer Guarantee?
The Fine Arts Program is not included in the Direct Transfer Guarantee, however, students are still encouraged to apply through the free Verto Partner Application for holistic review. These applicants must also submit a portfolio as part of their application. You can find information on the portfolio requirements here.


What if I have taken college coursework between graduating high school and starting at Verto?
You would still be eligible for the Direct Transfer Guarantee to AUR! The GPA requirements would be for your cumulative GPA from all college-level work (not including any Dual Enrollment).

Situated in the heart of Rome, we are home to students from over 50 countries and our classrooms feature a dynamic tapestry of cultures, traditions, and backgrounds that enrich every student's experience."
