If you make the wrong decision and end up at a college that's not the best fit for you, you're not stuck there. Here are 5 steps to transferring colleges.
 
If you’re unhappy at your current school, considering declaring a different major that your school doesn’t offer or just ready for a change, don’t let the work you’ll need to do to facilitate a transfer dissuade you from making that change. Sure, a flurry of paperwork and legwork will be in your near future if you decide to transfer, but it could be a quick and relatively painless process if you go about it the right way.

Here are five steps you should follow when transferring schools.

Since the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill went into effect in 2009, more than 1.5 million veterans have taken advantage of the legislation to help cover the costs of a college education. But it's not always a quick and easy road to an affordable degree.

The bill covers veterans' college tuition at public colleges and universities up to the in-state tuition amount.

Excellent point! -- "The terms “College Admissions” and “Social Media” are typically linked for one threatening reason: be careful what you post, because colleges may be watching you. But if colleges are watching you, doesn’t that represent an opportunity? Instead of worrying about the negative, why not create content, and engage across social media, that could actually improve your acceptance chances?" #college #admissions #socialmedia

Things you "must do" in college? Studying abroad and taking fun classes!
 
Now, I just cannot understand for the life of me how studying abroad is not an “I MUST do” prior to graduation.

Somehow it gets lost in the hustle and bustle of classes, passion projects on campus, love interests and the belief that leaving will simply destroy the hard work and fabulous life you have created for yourself at school. I implore you to not look at it that way.
