The search for the most appropriate and cheapest educational program needs a lot of time and effort, but in the future, it saves a lot of money.
One of the best ways to save money and to obtain credits is to begin studying in the local university and junior college. During further studying these credits can be transferred into the curriculum of the other university. The acceptance of the credits depends on the university. Usually, the nonspecialized subjects are accepted without problems, but the profile subjects must be retaken.
Transfer Earned Credits
The transfer process can be different in different universities. The earned credits can be transferred singly, in blocks, or in a full program. The single transferring means that the one course transfers into the same course in another university. The transferring in blocks implies that two or more courses are transferred. The transferring in full programs means that the associate degree from the local college transfers into the university as the credits of the first two years curriculum).
There are many websites that provide full information about credit transfers. There are three main types of such websites: the sites with general information about transferring in the US; the sites about the transferring in the area of the one-state; the sites devoted to the transferring in the particular university
There are some factors that influence the transferring process, such as investing time and costs of the course.
Before transferring it is desirable to examine the course catalog of the chosen university. There is a list of general courses there, which can be transferred from the junior college. It is a good idea also to send a letter of inquiry to the university concerning transferring politics. It is desirable to write to the Dean of the School or to the Chairman of the Department. Usually, they give the answer with a detailed description of the transferring process in the university.
