Preparing for College

Transfer from Community College

Question: I graduated in 2003 and did not apply to any colleges my senior year nor did I take my SATs. Am I still able to take SATs? How would I go about applying to four-year schools? I will be attending a community college in January and would like to know if its possible for me to get into a university by next fall or spring.

You are certainly able to take SATs and to attend a four-year school. Since you're already planning to start community college in January, you should forge ahead with that plan. Once you get there, contact the college transfer counselor (each community college has at least one) and discuss your goals with him or her. Some community college counselors are extremely helpful and others less so. Thus, once you've seen the counseling services that your new school offers, you'll have a better sense of how much assistance is likely to be available to you there.
