How Can I Help a Student Transfer to a Four Year University?

Students need to apply for a four year institution online at www.ApplyTexas.org.  If they are applying for financial aid, they will use the FAFSA website.  Learn more at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Universities require that you apply months before classes actually start.  Make sure you check with the university about the deadline for applications and financial aid.

Transfer to a four year university


This is a new experience for everyone in your family, so remember to talk about it! 

Encourage your entire family to participate in the college going process.  You can talk to advisors, attend orientation sessions, and schedule a campus tour to become familiar with college resources too.  If it’s the first time someone has attended a four year university, it may be tough to adjust to the change and balance daily life.  So keep the communication going!
