The website www.transfer101.org is packed with user friendly information and step by step instructions on how to successfully transition from community college to universities.
Many students begin their college careers at a community college like Frank Phillips College, knowing that they will eventually transfer to a university to finish a bachelor’s degree. If this is your future, we want to help you choose Frank Phillips College courses that will transfer and count toward your university.
It’s important to remember that specific majors have specific requirements. Many times, you can find this information on the website for the university you plan to attend;counselors and other advisors can help you make these decisions as well. Sometimes, students don’t realize that there is a difference between transferability and applicability. In other words, courses may transfer to a university, but not apply to the major you have chosen. For instance, if you begin your college career intending to major in History and then later switch to Business, many of the courses that you completed for the History degree will transfer and apply, but some will not. Many majors have specific course requirements, as do most universities.
Until you know what you are majoring in and where you want to complete your degree the counseling and advising staff will recommend that you take basic classes that transfer well to universities. The more specific you can be will help both you and our advising staff to serve you better.
If you are transferring hours from another institution to Frank Phillips College, please provide updated transcripts when meeting with your advisor.
