McGoddess, just stay on top of your advisor. Try to use the same advisor all 4 years, and if possible, use someone in the department you'll be graduating from. You usually can, although some schools require Freshmen to go to a college-wide advising office. As soon as you know the degree you want, learn ALL of the required classes, take them in the recommended order, register as soon as you can. It can be easier to get into classes that aren't at peak times, early morning or late afternoon classes don't fill as quickly as midday ones. Oh, and make the department, um, Administrative Assistant (
) your bestest
friend. Baked goods go a long way. I know from experiences on both sides of that desk!
Sara, I think you went with the best option. 4-year Universities are really
cracking down on accepting credits from community colleges/2-year schools because they want the tuition money.
