Transferring from one college to another is a little complicated in my opinion.

I’m in the process of transferring from community college to a four year school. I’m trying to figure out how to make the process as seamless as possible. For example, how do I move over my financial aid? How do I sign up for classes at the new school before they are all filled up?

The following is an email I sent to the four year school I’m transferring to. I hope it gives anyone in my position food for thought. If you have any feedback leave it in the comments.


I submitted the application for X College yesterday.

I would like to transfer to the X College as soon as I’m accepted. That can be this semester or one or two more into the future. I’m glad I started the process now because it’s a little complicated. For example, I’m trying to figure out how I line up signing up for classes at the new school before everything is booked up? How I move over my financial aid? Basically, how I make a smooth transition. I’m patiently taking it step by step. I’m going to read all the materials on the websites about it this weekend.

I have a 4.0 GPA after 24 credits at X Community College. I’m signed up for Math next semester. I’m not sure but I think someone said without Math I can’t transfer.

My question is once I pass math will I have enough time to transfer the next semester? Or will I have to wait one more semester after that to get everything lined up perfectly? I’m on public assistance so I have to be a full-time student at all times or my benefits are cut. Also, I have student loans/direct loans, etc so I can’t have a break without school.

Please advise with any information you can and I’m going to read everything there is on the web.

Thank you and have a great day.

Ever upward,

Mark Pine
