Transfer Student Planner

Many students start at a two-year college with the intention of transferring, or start at a four-year college and then later decide to transfer.  Not all courses transfer to all colleges, so you'll save time and money by planning ahead and taking courses from accredited colleges that will most easily transfer.

Here's a quick checklist to help you plan:

  1. Talk with an academic advisor at your first college and learn about articulation agreements that determine how your courses will transfer.
  2. Talk with an admission counselor or academic advisor at your transfer college.
  3. Submit an application for admission and send transcripts to your transfer college.
  4. Contact the financial aid office at your transfer college.
