If you are thinking about transferring from Long Island universities to other colleges, you need to know what to expect. Many of your units will transfer from one college to another, but you will need to talk with both schools in order to see what will transfer and what will not. Even if you are attending a good school, the transfer of credits is not guaranteed because of the difference in teaching standards.
Another thing you will need to consider whenever you are transferring from your schools is how it will affect your student loans. In most cases, your student loans will be transferred to the new school and you will not feel any difference. In rare cases, you will need to reapply all over again whenever you get to the new school. This is something you should know in advance before transferring from Long Island universities.
