7 steps to success: the college transfer path

Original post made by Doing College, another community, on Aug 26, 2013

Each year I receive calls from high school seniors who want help with the transfer path. My heart skips a beat when I get this type of call, particularly when it arrives at the tail end of the student’s senior year, or worse, mid-summer. The benefits of attending community college, such as smaller classes and lower tuition and fees than a four year college, are most beneficial if you can enroll and progress through the system in a timely way. That has become a greater challenge than ever before due to the impact of California’s budget crisis and extensive cuts that our public system has endured.
