Find information about USD transfer students, registering for degree programs, and taking free practice tests online. Which college degrees give you the best chances of finding employment after graduation? Some students select a major because it may be valuable in the workplace. Other students choose their major simply because they enjoy the subject material. As the USD admissions office has to analyze many applications, your goal is to stand out in a good way. Admissions application dates vary for transfer students, so check your application status with the admission's office to request a list of major requirements, and an updated schedule of summer classes. As a transfer student, you should apply to several schools as back-up choices, as well as more competitive first-tier colleges. Placement testing as well as information concerning transfer students may be posted on the student services website.

Depending on the schools you're applying to, the admissions process can range from a formula for grades and test scores, to a subjective review. The most popular college major is business administration, split evenly between men and women. On the other hand, men make up the majority of computer science and engineering majors. For women, the fields of education, English and liberal arts dominate the list. If you choose, online education gives you the opportunity to take difficult courses that won't show up on your transcript. Alternatively, you may be able to complete online credits for a grade. Students can participate in group discussions online via Google Hangouts, a free video-conferencing application.

Online Courses - MOOCs

USD transfer students
Graduates with either a bachelors or associates degree typically earn 60% more than employees with only a high school diploma, adding up to an $800,000 difference in lifetime earnings. If you remain true to your career interests, not just going after salary, your overall job earnings will increase as you gain experience. However, if your focus is more on salary alone, there's a higher risk that you'll suffer early signs of burnout, and be forced to change careers later on.

Technical training programs are a low-cost alternative to attending a regular four-year university, and you can earn good money as a highly-skilled, technical specialist. By taking some of your required degree courses online, you may be able to graduate a semester early, thus saving money on tuition. If you're currently employed, you can take online courses in your free time to advance your career. Massive Open Online Courses are known as MOOCs, utilizing interactive platforms such as Blackboard, and mobile apps. Udemy is a startup with backing from the founders of Groupon. Similarly, Khan Academy now offers free lecture videos served through YouTube. Then there's Coursera, a competing software platform, with millions of enrolled students from around the world. Finally, MIT announced that their open courseware platform (OCW) will be available at no cost.

This section offers practice tests in several engineering subject areas. Each of the following multiple-choice tests has 10 questions to work on. No sign-up required, just straight to the test.
 

Admissions Process

Most colleges accept either the SAT or ACT, and have formulas for converting raw test scores. Colleges use these standardized tests because there are substantial differences in curricula, grading, and difficulty among US high schools. ACT test questions are geared towards higher levels of high school mathematics, while the SAT test is a better choice for students with an excellent vocabulary. On average, over half of students retaking the SAT saw improvements in their scores. Further, Advanced Placement exams are offered in a variety of physical sciences, offering you college credit for honors-level classes that you have taken while still in high school. Test yourself with practice exams online, before visiting the College Board website to register to take your actual AP Tests.

In some instances, colleges may spot-check admissions applications for accuracy, such as requiring proof of a summer internship. High school grades are the most important factor in gaining admission to the college of your choice. An ideal academic record is one of increasingly better grades, in courses of progressive difficulty. About half of colleges use a waiting list, and many community colleges have agreements with four-year universities, so that the transfer of credits is ensured.

Financial Aid Information

Government scholarships and grants, combined with private scholarships, only account for a third of total college aid. Loans, earnings, and savings make up the remaining two-thirds. It costs nothing to apply for financial aid, so just do it. In fact, millions of students that would have qualified for some financial aid were late in submitting required forms, so they were passed over. The official FAFSA website is www.fafsa.ed.gov and is free. Merit-based aid is a package of scholarships and grants awarded to students with special talents.

According to the US Department of Education, nearly 45 million Americans incurred student debt during their college career. Student loans often carry an origination fee. Origination fees are a one-time charge based on the amount of the loan. Federal Direct Student Loans are funded by the US Treasury. Alternatively, student credit cards may seem like a good short-term solution, but the interest rates are high, and credit cards often carry an annual fee. FastWeb.com is one of the leading scholarship services online. Both county and city governments have dedicated financial resources allocated for grants and scholarships to qualified students in their areas.
