I'm currently in the Running Start program (which allows high school students to earn college credit at a local community college while also fulfilling high school graduation requirements) and I'm going to be entering my senior year this September which means applying to colleges...yikes! I am planning on graduating high school with my AA (Associates) degree in Integrated Studies which is a DTA (Direct Transfer Agreement) for colleges in state (Washington). However, I also want to apply to schools out-of-state, specifically in California and I was just wondering if my degree/credits would transfer out of state?
would having an AA improve or worsen my chances? And with Washington schools most college's specific whether running start students should apply as freshman or transfers but with out of state schools I'm not quite sure!
Searching through college board's big future website there are a few colleges in Cali that I am interested in that have "2 year credits transfer" so would that imply that they would accept my degree?
