I spent years saving money in order to beNov 06 2014Electrical Engineering
I spent years saving money in order to be able to attend this college and I think I may have expected too much from this institution. If this is the standard of education we can expect from our four year universities, no wonder our country is lagging others in tech fields. I again recommend Front Range Community College wholeheartedly. Get all your pre-requisites done there and take advantage of every class they offer that will transfer credit to CSU. APPLY EARLY for acceptance into the university as well as any scholarships you qualify for...pay strict attention to cut-off dates as they are completely non-negotiable. This is a great school for financial aid and scholarships...you can actually MAKE money attending here if you qualify for this kind of assistance.

DO NOT GO TO CSU AS A TRANSFER STUDENT!!!Apr 16 2014Architecture & Urban Planning Department
DO NOT GO TO CSU AS A TRANSFER STUDENT!!! They just make you re take all of those exact same classes anyway. Happens to every single transfer student, and it will happen to you. CSU accepted me into the school and told me all of my credits I had already done would transfer, no problem. A year of out of state tuition later I find out my credits will not transfer and I would have to start as a freshman. I was utterly devastated, I should've had only one year to graduate. I met so many students in the same boat. CSU accepted them and their credits, then "another department" says they aren't transferrable, so you have to re-take all of those classes!! It seems to be the protocol here. I even knew of at least FIVE students who were about to graduate and found out classes they took at CSU won't count for credit all of a sudden!!! I was only there one year so I didn't even know that many people! They keep getting away with this because they can. I spent more time arguing with admissions then I did in class or doing homework. I even got someone very very high up in the school system to listen to me, but thats where it ended, they still wouldn't accept transfer credits or refund tuition. They ignored me after one meeting. I even went to a lawyer and they said I had a case, but would cost me an arm and a leg. Save yourself from a bad education and hassle and just go somewhere else for school. Infact, don't go to any State schools, the bureaucracy is hell and education mediocre at best.

If you are a transfer student and have a low GPA I would recommend retaking classes at a community/jr college to increase gpa to about a 3.0.
