Steps to Take
When you have earned 1-29 college level credits
  • Make initial contact with a faculty advisor (Request an adviser as soon as possible.)
  • Visit with college representatives that visit Highline every quarter. (See calendar for schedule of visits.)
  • Find out what prerequisites and requirements are needed for admission to your major as well as the university--they may not be the same. Be sure to talk to your faculty adviser about transfer requirements for your major. Visit Highline's Transfer Center for assistance with your planning.
  • If unsure of major, start exploring! Contact the Counseling Center for assistance.
When you have earned 30-45 college level credits
  • Continue working on your transfer prerequisites for admission to your major.
  • Work on finishing general AA or AS requirements and specific transfer requirements.
  • Attend transfer workshops and information sessions held on campus or at your university.
  • Continue working with your faculty adviser on a regular basis (at least once a quarter).


When you have earned 46-60 college level credits
  • Apply to your intended schools. Make sure you check with each school's deadlines (Note: Running start students and international students may not have the same deadlines as general transfer students)
  • Also, be sure to note if there is a separate application for your major.The deadline for general admission and the deadline for your major may NOT be the same.
  • Research and apply for financial aid/scholarships by the deadlines listed by the university.
  • Apply for housing, if needed.
  • If you need letters of recommendation, be sure to give your instructors enough time to write a strong letter of support. However, you need to get to know your instructors first so be sure to make that important connection early on.
  • If your college requests a personal statement, be sure to write an effective and thoughtful essay. Attend Highline's How to Write a Winning Personal Statement workshop held on campus during fall and winter quarters. (See calendar.)
  • Continue meeting with your faculty adviser.
