Is it okay???

<p>Is it okay to transfer from a 4 year college to a 2 year college and get an associates degree and transfer back to a 4 year college?</p>

<p>Yep. People do it all the time.</p>

<p>Yeah, I'm actually doing that right now. The only bad thing about it is that I feel like I'm digressing as a student by going to a cc versus if I had just stayed at my 4 year college. CC is basically like high school version 2.0. The material is a little bit harder than high school, but it seems like we move at the same, slow pace. The only real advantage is that cc is much cheaper.</p>

<p>Also, I'm not sure you should get an associates, because I know that in order to get an associates in business at my cc, you have to take several classes that most likely aren't going to transfer to a 4 year. My cc requires kids to take classes like Intro to Business, Intro to Marketing, Intro to Accounting, etc... in order to graduate with an associates in business. </p>

<p>I'd say if you know what college you want to tranfer to, you should just take the classes that are going to definitely transfer there.</p>

<p>An associates is useless, I don't understand why you would want to do that?</p>

<p>Thanks for everyone reply. For burgler09, I wasn't talking about just stopping at an associates....I said get an associates degree and then transfer back to a 4 year college.</p>

<p>Right, I don't understand your reasoning for wanting to get an associates degree? An associates is unimportant if you plan to go on to get a bachelors degree. Why do you want to leave and go to a community college, and if you DO go to a community college, don't go for an associates, start taking classes in your major. It looks a lot better than just taking gen. eds.</p>

<p>Sunshine - most likely many of the classes neccesary for an associates degree will overlap with prereqs at the 4 year school you're targeting. That said, fulfilling those prereqs should take priority. From what I've gathered, doing so is a major factoring in transfer admissions decisions. Much more so than recieving your associate's.</p>
