Transfer from your current 4 year school to another 4 year college/university

Transferring from one 4 year college to another can be a journey of rediscovery. It's possible that your first choice college is not a good fit. Other reasons may be due to finances or personal family matters. Whatever the reason it's important that you reflect on why you want or need to change schools.

 

A few things to consider when you embark on this journey:

  • First, assess why you want to transfer. I have found that there are good reasons to transfer and not-so-good reasons. 

  • Begin your college search by focusing on what you want in a college this time around.

  • Find the transfer requirements for each school you are researching. 

  • Check out which credits transfer from your school to your prospective school(s).

  • If you get merit aid from your current school you may not be eligible for the same aid at your new school. 

  • If you live on campus, find out how to get released from your room & board agreement.

  • Depending on your circumstances you may need or desire to come home and attend a community college to fulfill your GE requirements. This is a perfectly good option if you need more time to decide on what to do next.
