So You Want to Transfer?

All those students planning on transferring to a four year school next fall: Make sure all of your information has been sent to the transfer school! Many deadlines have already past but others will be coming up very soon.

Many students come out of high school expecting college will be exciting and easily handled. Many have no idea what they want to do ... except go to college.

Knowing what you want is important. You need to pick a direction. You need to know that your path is achievable. Planning that path is vital.

Transferring to a four year school is a process not just an event. Talk to a counselor as you plan your future.
