The Transfer Process

BUT FIRST... 3 Easy Steps to Your Degree, Transfer, and Future Career

Step 1: Determine Your End Goal

Have you explored possible majors or career goals yet? Here are some ways to help you explore:

1. Not sure what program you want to pursue? View the Choosing a Program Guide to help determine which program is right for you.
2. Complete an online Career Assessment to discover your skills and interests. Two great planning tools are:

  • FOCUS2: A career and education planning system for college students. It combines self-assessment, career exploration and decision-making into one complete program. Focus 2 will help you map out a career plan and choose the right major to support your career goals. Login to Focus 2 online with the access code "counseling"
  • CHOICES: Visit Choices online. At the Student sign In, select Site ID and login using Site ID 25500 and Password u1200ps2. (If you only want to research careers, do not select Portfolio).

3. Meet with a counselor to begin your career exploration or discuss your assessment results. Call 215-751-8169, email or stop by the Counseling Center in Room BG-07 in the Bonnell Building on Main Campus to schedule an appointment. Counselors are also available at the Regional Centers.
