If you’re a college freshman, about a year ago this time you might have been excited to be heading to the college where you deposited, and moving on from high school. You never thought that you might have to navigate a transfer admissions process, and that you found the school that was the best fit. But if you’re reading this, it’s quite possible that the college you chose turned out to be the wrong choice.
However, the college transfer admissions process is quite different from the process you went through in high school. Here’s an eight question college transfer admissions checklist to help you decide. There’s also “skip” points at the ends of questions 1, 3, 5 and 6 to help you along.
The last decision you need to make, before you begin to prepare any transfer applications, is to decide when you want to begin your education at the next college. There are colleges that are still taking applications for this fall, though their numbers will dwindle as their registrars become more certain of the headcount for the start of that semester. Some schools will consider applicants for January entry, too. But no matter when you would like to make your move, make sure that you give yourself enough time to give the transfer admissions team time to make an informed decision.
Hopefully, it will be in your favor.
