Can you transfer to another school after completing one year undergrad? Come in as a sophomore or something? Thanks.

    Depends on the university you want to transfer to. Some accept sophomore transfers, yes.

    Lets say a university has pre-reqs, but they intend for soph transfers. If you choose to transfer freshman year would you still need to complete all of those?

    GlueEater, it depends on the school, some will want you to finish everything before you come and others will just want to see you are making progress towards the prereqs and just require you take them once you get there. One of the biggest differences between transferring after one year is that more weight is placed on ACT and high school gpa. Once you are a sophmore transferring for junior admission much more weight is placed on college and little to no weight is placed on your high school and ACT.

    It helps if you have enough units to get into junior year.

    Certainly, that's what I'm doing.

    A clear upside of transferring after one year is that you spend less time being miserable at your current school.

    It depends on how many credits you have and which school you're transferring to. Most schools go by credits not that you've been there for a year or three years.
