Road to college degree may pass through more than one school - Mark Loehrke, NWI Times

In some cases, a transfer is part of the plan from the beginning. For example, a common financially minded strategy for many students is to begin their college career at a smaller and/or nearby school or community college in order to save money on some of their general education courses before moving to a larger, more expensive campus to complete their major. “For students that are planning to complete their degree at an institution that is more expensive, such as a private institution or an out-of-state institution, it is a huge benefit if they are able to save on their general education or prerequisite courses by taking them at a local institution before they transfer,” says Linda Atkinson-Pettee, interim director of Student Success and Transition in the Academic Center for Excellence at Purdue University Northwest in Hammond.
