Transfer Tip #3: Plan ahead

Here's ELife's weekly transfer tip from Dr. Glenn DuBois:

Plan ahead. The earlier you begin to prepare for transfer, the better. Visit your top choices, collect transfer materials, and find out if there are any transfer agreements between where you are and where you want to go. The more information that you have, the easier it will be to make a decision. (Source)

NOVA’s transfer website provides an excellent semester-by-semester guide for successful transfer planning.

Also see:
  • Transfer Guides: A list of available college websites and their transfer guides for popular colleges and universities that NOVA students are often interested are available here. Transfer guides indicate how these institutions accept NOVA courses.
  • Articulation Agreements: NOVA and the VCCS have special agreements with several four-year colleges and universities. These agreements define the way courses, programs or entire categories of programs transfer to another institution. Check out the list of schools and their agreements here.
  • Guaranteed Admissions: As a NOVA student, you are offered guaranteed admissions to more than 20 Virginia colleges and universities when you meet the requirements of the agreement between NOVA and that college. To view the full list of colleges and universities and their guaranteed admissions agreements, visit here.

For a one-stop resource, use the VA Education Wizard to plan out, track and prompt you of the necessary steps to an easy transfer.
