Steps for Transferring
It is never too early to start preparing for your transfer. Starting early allows you to fully understand your options and to ensure the smoothest transfer possible. Some tips that will help in your planning:

Do Your Research
Colorado has a lot of great transfer options. There are also online options and the option to attend school out of state. As you explore the 4-year schools you are interested in, keep the following in mind:
- Review admissions requirements such as grade point average (GPA), letters of recommendation, etc.
- Familiarize yourself with Colorado's Transfer Admission Standards if you plan to attend school in Colorado
- Ensure the schools you are exploring have degree programs in which you are interested
- Know the cost of attendance and financial aid options
Take the time to call the financial aid offices of the 4-year school you are considering to learn important dates and deadlines as well as what types of financial aid will be available to you.
