It's never to early to starting planning
your next move for after MVCC! The earlier
you prepare for transferring, the better
(and less stressed) you will be!!

Depending on what you want to do, you may not need
to continue on and get a Bachelor's (4-Year Degree)!

Examples of careers you only need an Associates Degree for:
Criminal Justice
Any Technology (Welding, HVAC etc)
Chemical Dependency
Culinary Arts
Hotel/Restaurant Management

**NOTE: You CAN continue on and get a Bachelor's degree in most of the job fields that will enable you to get a higher position & more money**
Application Fees:
Unlike MVCC, each 4-yr school charges a fee to apply!
SUNY=$50 per school (Have a 2 yr degree from MVCC = Apply to 4 SUNYs for FREE using SUNY Application!
Private/Non-SUNY Schools = anywhere from $30-$150
Applications fees are NON-REFUNDABLE!
College Transcript Fees

You must send a transcript from MVCC twice! Once when you apply, and again after you graduate, or finish your last semester!
Your very first Transcript from MVCC is free, any additional will cost you $10.00
You must also send any other college credit transcripts too! (other colleges, AP scores etc)

If possible, apply online! (No postage!)
Less chance of application getting lost, spilled on, misfiled etc...
If you do have to mail it, request a delivery confirmation from the Post Office!
What if I didn't get accepted in ANY schools?

There might still be hope!
Make an appointment with someone in the transfer office asap!
