Student" is one who enters RVC directly from another
college or university. In most instances the transfer student
enters the AVC program for initial orientation.
Transfer Student" is one who enters RVC directly from
an ISKCON center where he resided. Since ISKCON provides Vedic
education, often these students have already imbibed the fundamental
knowledge and culture taught in the AVC and are therefore
exempted from taking that introductory course. Some ISKCON
transfer students have already taken courses at VIHE (Vrndavana
Institute of Higher Education) or other similar institutes
or have passed Bhakti Sastri exams. Such students are awarded
transfer credits accordingly by the RVC Academic Department's
discretion and are then accepted in either undergraduate,
graduate or doctoral programs as the case may be. Persons
residing within ISKCON centers wishing to transfer to RVC
may apply to the Admissions Department in the customary way
and in addition must furnish the following documents:
resume of specific services one has performed including the
dates and places of service rendered in ISKCON.
written references from leading ISKCON devotees with whom
one has served in the past.
