I'm a current high school student. I was just curious how the process might be to transfer from a school to a better one that I might not be able to get into from high school. #college #college-admissions #college-selection #college-transfer

You simply apply just as if you were applying as an incoming Freshman. You will be required to send transcripts on any courses completed as well as your high school transcripts.

<span style="background-color: transparent;">Collegeboard.org is a great resource for this! I poured through the pages of universities all over the U.S. when I was a senior in high school. Collegeboard was my go-to site! They put all of the information in one place and it is very easy to use. They even have various filters you can apply to see only colleges that have programs you are interested. To determine academic rigor, look at the admissions requirements, G.P.A. of past admitted applicants, SAT/ACT scores, class rank etc. This will give you an idea of what scores and grades you need to be accepted. However, don't be discouraged your application will be reviewed based on the full picture! College-board will help you get an idea of what is most important to the specific school you are applying to.</span>


This professional recommends the following next steps:

  • <span style="background-color: transparent;">Chat with your Guidance Counselor</span>
  • <span style="background-color: transparent;">Create a Collegeboard.org account</span>
  • <span style="background-color: transparent;">Start using CollegeBoard as a resource to look up schools.</span>

Hi Eric!


Congratulations on thinking ahead.


A route that you may want to take may indeed involve transferring in an organized and oft taken plan - or you may find that it is not necessary. Many people find that starting out at a community college, to save money and only go through one major transition from high, is a great move. Many community colleges have very good internship and coop programs that many 4 year colleges cannot claim. Also, many community colleges have formed relationships with major colleges to ease the transfer process - if you find it to be necessary.


Best of luck! Please keep me posted. I would like to follow your progress!
