Transferring Do you plan to transfer from Lone

Transferring Do you plan to transfer from Lone Star College Tomball to a university? If so, it is NEVER too early to start the transfer planning process. If you are unsure of where to start, then this PowerPoint is for you! Transferring Step 1-Choose a major Some students know exactly what career path they would like to pursue. Others are still undecided. Choosing a major is critical because it will ensure that the courses you take while at Lone Star will not only transfer, but will count towards your degree at the university level as well. If you HAVE decided on a major you should meet with an

advisor to discuss your degree plan at LSC and how exactly to match the courses you take at LSC to your universitys degree plan. If you are UNDECIDED on a major, consider using Career Counseling here at LSC Tomball. Contact the Advising and Counseling office to schedule an appointment with our Career Counselor so that you can match your interests with your abilities to determine suitable career choices.

Which schools offer your major and have well reputed programs? What types of financial aid are offered to transfer students? Will you be required to live on or off campus?
