How many semesters and credits will be required to complete a degree in my stated major field of study?
What core/general education electives are required? Note that colleges/universities have different requirements for the courses they accept as transfer credits.
Are there a maximum number of credits that are eligible for transfer?
What courses and credits will be accepted for transfer credit and what are their course equivalencies?
How will the transferred courses and requirements help me to earn the degree I am seeking?
What scholarship opportunities are available for transfer students? Be sure to ask this early on to ensure that you meet all application deadlines. Funds may be limited for transfer students.
What type of living space is available? Every college has unique policies related to housing - be sure to ask what options are available to you as a transfer student.
