There is a new 2nd edition of this book. This is the only book of its kind for students.

Although designed primarily for student use, counselors can use the book, too, for one-on-one counseling and as a textbook for counseling workshops and classes.

It is a lot more complex transferring from a community college to a four-year college or university than it is going directly from high school.

The Community College Transfer Guide spells out step by step, from start to finish, what every student needs to know and do to transfer to a four-year college or university. This inexpensive book shows students how to plan and navigate their way through the maze of course and transfer requirements as well as the application and financial aid procedures.

    Discover:
  • The secrets of transferring successfully
  • The benefits of guaranteed admissions programs
  • The 10 key steps to transferring

    Learn how to:
  • Find the best four-year college for you
  • Select the right courses for transfer credit
  • Choose the best major for you
  • Write your application essays
  • Complete your transfer applications
  • Find the money to attend college
