Transferring Made Easy: A Guide to Changing Colleges Successfully.
Shishkoff, Muriel M.
This book offers students practical guidance in transferring from one higher educational institution to another, including two-year and community colleges. Following a reprint of the transfer student's bill of rights and an introduction, chapter 1 identifies seven steps to a successful transfer: (1) identify the career and course of study you wish to pursue; (2) choose a school that is right for you and will help you meet your goals; (3) determine if you (and your credits) are eligible for admission; (4) get help drawing up a transfer plan that will satisfy your degree requirements; (5) plan for and complete your school's graduation and general education patterns; (6) plan and complete your lower division major preparation; and (7) don't take your eyes off the goal. Chapter 2 lists common pitfalls to easy transfers and offers advice for how to avoid them. Chapter 3 discusses funding, including financial aid packages, grants, loans, part-time jobs, and others. Chapter 4 treats the needs of special students, including reentry adults, athletes, international students, the handicapped, students in the military, and minorities. Chapter 5 answers 50 frequently asked questions about transferring, and chapter 6 discusses the adjustment required after the transfer takes place. (JB)
