ADMISSIONS ADVICE:
“As a transfer student, there are three important questions you should ask when deciding where to attend. Is my major offered? Will my credits transfer? Is this institution financially attainable? If you are transferring from a community college, check to see which four year institutions they have partnerships or agreements with. Also, when you do transfer, do your best to get involved on campus. It will make your overall experience much more enjoyable."

Admission Advice:
Visit colleges and universities when classes are in session. Visiting a school during any time of the year is great, but going while class is in session gives you the opportunity to see if you could really picture yourself there. Picking a college is a big decision, and you want to be able to make a pick where you can see yourself happy, where you can challenge yourself, and most importantly where you can grow both personally and intellectually.
