What are the best ways for students to make sure all their credits transfer?
Have your transcript analyzed by the admissions office at your new college. If you are transferring from a community college, you can often use course descriptions from both schools to get a good idea of which classes will transfer (this is especially true if you are applying to state colleges, as many have online systems that allow you to easily determine which courses satisfy which lower division requirements). You can only be sure, however, when your transcript has been formally evaluated by your new school. In most cases, this doesn't take place until after you've been admitted, but if you're concerned about transferability of courses, give the admissions office a call and see how they can help.
