Question by Jess: How would one go about transferring colleges, and how does that affect student loans?
I am currently going to University of Phoenix but the classes are far too easy and I have less opportunities (I.E. No dean’s list, clubs, etc.)

Start getting your transfer applications together now. College websites usually have detailed information about the procedure for transfer admissions. Pay attention to deadlines! You’ll need to request official transcripts from your high school/GED and University of Phoenix. If you owe UOP any money, they won’t release your transcript until you pay up. Make sure you officially withdraw; I hear charges can magically appear on your bill when you’re trying to leave them.

If you’re transferring for the spring 2011 semester, go into your current school year’s FAFSA and add the new school, so they will get your financial aid information. If you’re transferring for the fall 2011 semester, just put in the new school on your FAFSA instead of UOP. You will also need to call the financial aid offices of both schools and let them know you are transferring, so everybody knows what’s going on. Your loans should transfer over easily; your new college’s financial aid department can give you more guidance on the details of that.

Bad news: Most real colleges will not accept UOP transfer credits, so you will probably have to re-take whatever you’ve already taken. Good luck with that.
