It never occurred to me that I could transfer once I got to college, not that I would have known where to go. Today, 60 percent of students in the U.S. will transfer before receiving their undergraduate degree. Who knew?
That's according to a study just released by the National Association for College Admission Counseling. Do guidance counselors discuss transfers as a strategy? Do they tell the students that a solid GPA is what will help them transfer into the college of choice, along with solid grades in transferrable courses? There's good information to consider if your teen thinks that a transfer may be in his future.
