At the end of spring semester, sophomores who are graduating must decide which college or university you want to attend next. Something students may want to consider when making this decision is, will this university accept my credits from Snow College?

According to CNN Money, “An overwhelming 91% of students surveyed felt the education they received while at Snow College lead to the successful four year university of their choice.” According to this site, there are about 1,200 community colleges in the nation and Snow College is ranked at number six for the category for graduation rates and transferring success.

Melinda Lundgreen, a sophomore at Snow College said, “Snow College is a good starting point to transfer from because you learn a lot about college life and how college differs from high school for not a lot of money.” She is transferring to Utah State, and it has been a smooth transition.

Snow is a great place to get that one on one attention that you need to be successful to transfer to a bigger institution. The Snow College catalog states, “Most Snow College students indicate that their long term goal is to complete a bachelor’s degree and will eventually transfer to a four-year university. The process of transferring can be a confusing one, but the student success advisors can help students achieve a smooth transition.”

In the Student Life Center, you can get a little more information about this subject. Susan

Larsen, an advisor “It is a lot easier to transfer to another school when you do have your degree than if you didn’t have one. Keep this in mind that every college has different policies about accepting transcripts so keep in mind of what will be accepted and what won’t be. Keep in mind when transferring to a college, see what you are going into if you have an idea or a desire to do so and see what they will accept towards your major.”

Tyler Cardwell, a sophomore at Snow College, said, “Snow College does a good job at preparing students to transfer to the next level and involving its students.”
