Transferring to another college is always an option

Thursday, March 01, 2012
If you find yourself feeling unhappy after your first semester at college, it does not necessarily mean that higher education is not right for you. Sometimes, it just means you have yet to find the college or university that is right for you. If this is the case, you may want to consider transferring to a different school.

Before you begin the transfer process, ask yourself why you are unhappy. Maybe the courses are not as challenging as you had expected, or you really do not fit in with the general student body. Perhaps there is a lack of extracurricular activities, or you can’t adjust to the quiet rural or the fast-paced urban setting of your chosen school. The reason for wanting to transfer may be as simple as the fact that you would prefer to live closer to home or the tuition is too high.

Should you choose to complete your studies elsewhere, you will want to search for schools that you feel can better meet your personal and academic needs. When looking at these schools’ Web sites be sure to pay close attention to the requirements for transfer students.

Keep in mind that the grades you have received in college may carry more weight than your high school transcript, so continue to work hard, even if you do not plan on staying at your current school.ADNFCR-16000756-ID-800721244-ADNFCR - helping you find colleges and universities that offer the accredited programs that most interest you.
