Transfer Planning Steps

Step 1- Career Planning

If you are uncertain about your major before you start education planning, start with career counseling. This will help you figure out your career path. Once you know what you want to do professionally, then you can begin targeted educational planning so that every course you take counts towards your transfer goal.

For career counseling support visit the Career Center Room A11, or visit the Counseling office in Room A110

Step 2 - Research

It is imperative that you research programs offered at different universities. Do not eliminate private colleges and universities without first researching what they have to offer.  Many offer attractive options and programs to transferring community college students.

While researching the program of study also research the policies of the transfer school you are interested in. This includes financial costs and available financial aid, the location of the college, the fit with your personality; as well as if the college you are considering transferring to is accredited. Use the link below to view the accreditation status of any U.S. college or university, and research financial Aid information.

Step 3 - Educational Planning - General Education, Major, Admission Requirements

Having a detailed mapped out education plan will help you select the right courses and maximize your time in college. Once you have identified a transfer university and a major, schedule a one hour appointment with a counselor in the counseling office in Room A110. Counselors usually have additional information with regards to your program that you may not have access to.  It is recommended after your first one hour education planning session, that you have a follow up appointment at least once every semester.
