Saving Money On College: To Transfer or Not to Transfer?

List: Posted: 02/25/11

When you are looking to go to college, one of the biggest worries you may face is the rising cost of higher education.  There is no doubt about it, college is expensive.  And if you are looking to attend a prestigious four year college without scholarships and grants, the costs can be exorbitant.

 

One thing many people consider is a two year transfer from a less expensive school. You can save a surprising amount of money as a transfer student if you make the right choices. 

 

The first thing you will want to do is to ensure that all of the credits you gain at your community college or university will transfer to the four year school you wish to attend.  After all, you don’t want to spend all of that money and hard work just to find out that your credits are no good. 

Keep in mind that community and state colleges often allow credit transfers only to certain other colleges and universities.  This means that if you are completing two years at one school, you need to be certain that you are going to be able to attend a four year university that will accept those credits. 

 

Saving money on college is easy when you choose a less expensive school for the first two years, but research is key.  Whether you are looking to save via community college long enough to get a two year degree or to establish residency, you want to be certain that everything fits into your four year plan, as well.
