Your college GPA is going to be important. Very important. But there are other factors, too. Firstly, you'll need an SAT or ACT score that you took no more than five years ago at the time you apply to transfer. You'll also have to have at least one recommendation (from a current teacher/professor) and have to write at least one essay (the "why I want to transfer here and what I've already learned"). Participate in any interesting extracurriculars that are offered at your junior college or do things in the community (paid or unpaid). Don't lose complete track of your high school and your high school guidance counselor since you quite possibly might have to send your high school transcript to your intended transfer school (in addition to your junior college's) A vast majority of schools' transfer application deadlines are March 1 for admission the following fall semester (one notable exception is the University of California system whose deadline in December 1). This date is generally when everything needs to be in (application, recommendations, transcript, etc.). For most schools, you don't have to "let them know" that you're planning to transfer except by submitting an application (many don't even do interviews for transfers). Of course, you should try and visit your top pick(s) and possibly chat with an admissions counselor. This gives you information on the school and you could potentially earn a couple brownie points in the admissions process. And, no, you are not rushing things too early. It's good to plan things out ahead and I think you will do well in life if you continue that habit =)

This is a good question. Yet, you are rushing things a bit too early. When you have finished your two year degree, your advisor will typically help you with the transfer to the 4 year college or university of your choice. Once you have decided which university to attend, you normally will do this: 1. Send your application to the University 2. They will want your transcripts from the Registrar of the Community College. You go to the Registrar with a form provided by the University, you fill out a transcript request form. The Registrar will then process your form and send your transcripts to the University of your choice. More than likely the university where you transfer will want sealed and certified copies, so your Community College may charge a small fee to process the request. 3. Once you have the transcripts, the application, and the letters of recommendation sent, the university will contact you with an acceptance or rejection note. You will need to know that some of your credits from your two year degree will transfer and some will NOT transfer. Core requirements vary from school to school and while you may have taken the requisite 60 or plus hours for your associates degree, not all 60 will transfer. I've rarely seen where all credits transfer into your new university. You will also need to check with the university that you plan to attend to make sure your credits were transferred and if you have any questions you can speak to someone in the Registrar office or the office for Transfer students (the name will vary from campus to campus). Good Luck!

you may desire to verify your weighted GPA. Universities do not check out your total GPA. They recalculate it making use of academic classes premier (they forget approximately fitness center, artwork, keep, etc.) and supply extra sides for AP and honors instructions. you should are trying retaking the SAT or ACT. perfect now your try scores are too low for FSU, UF, UCF, and doubtless USF.

I don't see why not. I transferred to UNF from a Michigan college with a 3.1 GPA, so it's quite doable. ☼
