    Step 2: Maintain a GPA at or above the Average Transfer GPA of your Target Institution

    Your current college GPA is going to largely dictate the colleges you can consider transferring to. You should be focused on elevating this as much as possible.

    HACK: Consider taking a few easier classes or professors to give your GPA a boost - future colleges won’t know the difficulty of each class or professor, they’ll just be looking at the overall picture.

    Also, make sure your current GPA aligns with the average transfer GPA at a college.

    You may be thinking, “What is the average transfer GPA for my college?” Lucky for you, CampusReel breaks down transfer requirements, GPAs and more by school.

    Step 3: Align Your Course Selection with the Transfer Application

    If you apply to be an agriculture major but don’t take agriculture classes, it’s going to be pretty hard to convince them you’re a genuine applicant…

    It you don’t know what you want to study, don’t worry - millions of students enroll as undeclared majors.

    However, if you know what you want to study and you align your course selections and application appropriately, you will have a much better shot at acceptance.

    Universities often accept transfer applicants to fulfill very targeted spots. For example, maybe they need more economics or engineering majors while they are swamped with Spanish majors.

    If you actively want to study a subject that fulfills a need in the school’s study body, and your application and essay speak to that desire, they will interpret your application as cohesive and purposeful.

    You are changing a lot more than schools - you are changing friends, environments, credits, costs, etc.

    All this change can be amazing, but it also has its drawbacks...

    Risk #1 Will my college credits transfer?

    The most obvious risk of transferring colleges is that you will lose existing college credits that you have earned. The most likely scenario is that some, but not all, of your college credits will transfer. Additionally, many universities have minimum grade requirements for a course to count for transfer credit.

    You can select a university from the list below to see a breakdown of its minimum grade requirements:

    Risk #2 Will I like the college I transfer to?

    If you’re enrolled at a college you know exactly how important the people and community are. No platform in the world provides the same insight into the college experience as CampusReel.

    This obviously a difficult question to answer. It’s also exactly why we created CampusReel - watch more than 15,000 student-made videos that show you exactly what it’s like to be a part of their communities… like this:

    Risk #3 Starting over...

    It’s takes time to find your home within a larger college community. Transferring colleges is not different - in fact, this transition is often even more difficult because many students already have established friend groups.

    I recommend checking out the existing transfer population at a university before deciding to enroll. Does it receive 10 new transfer students each year, or 10,000? These numbers can help indicate how many other people will be in your same boat - it’s often easier to make friends with other transfer students first.
