Depending on where you live, what school you go to, or what you want to study, transferring can be a stressful process. There are things you can do to make it less stressful. The most important things are to plan early and speak with an advisor. These two things will have a significant impact on your transfer. If you get a late start, it is still possible to have a smooth transfer. As soon as you know you want to transfer, you need to start planning.

Know your options means you need to set yourself up in a position to transfer. You want to be a desirable student. To make yourself desirable, it is important to have good grades and take challenging classes. In addition, it is very desirable to have campus and community involvement on your record. Getting involved in things, like Phi Theta Kappa, you will be exposed to many more resources to help you along your transfer process. Organizations like this can open your eyes to a whole new world of possibilities you never would have discovered on your own.

As soon as you know you want to transfer, start doing your research. It is up to you to find schools in your area or that have strong programs you are interested in. Find out what is required of you or may be useful even if it is not required. You may be asked to take a placement test. This is to determine your level of preparedness so you are able to plan the best course schedule for you. Check their admission requirements. There may be a general trend, but if not, you will need to evaluate your situation and decide where to go from there. Stick to your decision, but get advice. You do not want to be naïve to things that may hurt you in the long run.
