Plan Ahead and Ask Questions

Since each college has its own requirements, the most important thing you can do to make the transfer process run smoothly is plan ahead.

 

Get help from these resources:

  • Your high school counselor
  • College websites
  • The admission, advisors and counseling offices of  St. Louis Community College
  • Your professors
  • Library Resources
  • Transfer advisers at the admission offices of the four-year colleges you’re considering

Ask these questions:

  • Does the two-year college have a special transfer relationship — often called an articulation agreement — with any four-year colleges?
  • Will the credits I earn be accepted at the four-year colleges I’m considering?
  • What grades do I need to earn in my classes to get credit at the four-year colleges?
  • What’s the minimum GPA I need to maintain to get into the four-year colleges?
