Transfer Tip #6: Choose a major

Here's ELife's weekly transfer tip from Dr. Glenn DuBois
Choose a major. Pick your major early, and seek advice about the best courses to take to meet requirements. By choosing your major early, you can take the prerequisites that you need for that program at the university. Well-planned course taking will help you finish your transfer program more efficiently, saving you time and money in the long run. (Source)
NOVA’s Career Services website allows you to research majors and guides you to resources that will help you decide the best path. You can explore career fields and find out the education needed for specific jobs. Also, take a look at the Explore a Career Cluster feature on Virginia Career View.

And remember, the Virginia Wizard is a great one-stop resource. This tool can help you choose a career, get the information you need to pursue your career, find the college that is right for you, pay for college, transfer from a community college to a university, and get answers to your questions about your future.

Note: Applied degree programs (AAA and AAS) are not designed to transfer, although in special cases graduates of applied programs may be able to transfer.
