Purchase a computer with updated software, or begin to save money toward a purchase in the future; make sure your printer is operational and you have a supply of printer ink for the entire term
Attend an open house at desired four-year institutions
Contact several four-year institutions, search websites for contact information and transfer students admissions criteria/policies and application deadlines
Search four-year institutions for a tentative program of study (major) and the four-year pathways for that major available to transfer students. This plan allows transfer students to look at the senior institution’s required courses for satisfying lower-level general education classes that transfer for credit
Use the Weekly Planning template as a worksheet to map out a tentative course schedule before registering for the next term
Use the Time Management Template as a weekly planning tool to manage your work, school, family responsibilities, extracurricular activities, sleep, eating, exercising and study time. Compare your planning time to the actual amount of time you spend in the scheduled time- make adjustments as necessary. Consider that for every hour you spend in class, you should spend 2-3 hours outside of class studying, reading, preparing, and working on papers/projects.
