Your Guide to Transferring to a Four-Year College

When I went to college 25 years ago, you pretty much went to DMACC or a Tech school OR you went to a four year college with further possibilities. I chose to go to Iowa State and get my bachelors degree in business and am thrilled with the results of my decision all those years ago. Some of my other friends went to four year schools and completed their degrees, some of them didn’t. Some of them went to two year schools and did great, and my wife is a graduate of a two year program at AIB.

The University of Iowa is a public flagship state-supported research university located in Iowa City, Iowa.

Now I’m a Dad of five kids, one is here at DMACC, one is pursuing a four year degree in teaching at UNI, and one will be going to DMACC for at least a year or so starting next fall. A four year college experience isn’t for everyone but if you think it’s for you, you need to be planning that adventure now while at DMACC pursuing whatever you are doing after here.For many students here on campus, DMACC will probably be the end of their college and educational experience. Here they have learned a trade that will lead them to an apprenticeship in their field and a full time job that they will do for the rest of their lives. For others of you, DMACC has always been a planned stepping stone to something bigger, and that’s what this special section of the Campus Chronicle is about for you.
