Sometimes, you don’t have a choice. You may need to move from a two-year to a four-year college to complete your degree, or you might have changed your mind and selected a major that’s not available at the college where you first enrolled. Sometimes, students start at one school hoping to improve their academic record and plan to transfer to a more competitive institution. Or, in some cases, student and/or family circumstances change, and students must transfer closer to home for a variety of reasons. The most important thing you can do is evaluate you current situation closely and make the decision that is best for you. Transferring schools is not the simplest process, but if you do your research and get organized, transferring schools can be fairly easy and beneficial.
