No school is perfect, but transferring can make sense if a student changes their major, seeks to study at a more prestigious university with significantly better resources, wants a second chance at an Ivy or highly ranked university, an athlete wants to change Division level or a student just wants to attend college closer to home.
There are also many solid reasons not to transfer that may not be obvious until a comprehensive evaluation is prepared. Will the new school accept all of your credits? Will they match your current academic/merit/athletic scholarship? Will you need an additional semester or two to graduate? Are you guaranteed on-campus housing or will you need to find your own apartment? What is the acceptance ratio for transfer students?
