I've got a few questions related to transferring to a 4 year university from my community college. After the fall semseter, I'll have 60 credits, which is enough for my general studies associate's degree. That would give me "priority admission" to Towson University, which is where I intend on getting my bachelors. I have two options. One, I can graduate in the fall, and then see about transferring to Towson in the spring. This may be problematic, because most of the orientation and such is geared towards people starting in a fall semester. I also believe that financial aid goes from fall semester through fall semester. If I apply to start in the spring, will it cause a big paperwork hassle? The other option is to ride it out at community college for one more semester (and then I'd get to call it an Astronomy degree rather than General Studies), and start at Towson in the fall like a normal human being. I'm actually running out of worthwhile classes to take at community college. Many of the upper level (for a community college, that is), such as General Physics 3, Calc 3, and Diff Eq are often canceled due to lack of interest. My physics professor told me that they haven't run a Physics 3 course at the community college in the past decade. So, if I were to hang around one extra semester, I wouldn't likely be taking any classes related to my major, so I'd have to keep up on the material on my own so I don't get rusty. On the other hand, I could use that "extra" semester to build up my GPA on some gen ed courses, for scholarship purposes. Anybody have any thoughts or comments? I'm not necessarily looking for a definitive answer, but any kind of feedback, suggestions, et cetera, would be appreciated. Is there anything I should be asking myself that I haven't thought of? Edit: Oh, one other question... Can I assume that it doesn't really matter at all if my Associate's Degree is in "General Studies" or "Astronomy?" It's the bachelors that really matters, right?
