I have a kid planning to transfer from CC to Uni. Because of LD issues, he only takes 12/13 credits a semester so will graduate in December (5 CC semesters rather than 4). So that would set him up to transfer in spring semester.
I've heard pros and cons to transferring in the spring. Of course it would save time for him not to wait a semester. But I'm thinking of the social aspects. This kid will have a hard time assimilating into the living-away-from-home environment. It seems like it might be better when more of his fellow students are also new to the school. I did some googling and what I saw indicates that a much higher number of students transfer in fall than in spring - which is understandable. But I was surprised at some of the numbers - 50 fall, 10 spring, for example.
I don't love the idea of him delaying any longer, but he is a kid who has always needed more time. (You might have been my chat thread on late-blooming boys.) Lots of issues I won't get into here, but ADHD, LDs including non-verbal learning disorder, some anxiety, social awkwardness.
Any thoughts here?
