Academic Advising for Transfer Students
Many Chesapeake College students continue their education by transferring college credits to a four-year college or university. However, one of the biggest problems students face when moving onto a four year college is the acceptance of their transfer credits. Many worry that the hard work they have done to complete their classes will not carry over to the new institution they have chosen. That is why we offer aid to help make the most out of your education. Below are a set of important questions to consider when looking at a new school.
- What do I need to know before I start searching for a four year college or university?
