Academic Flexibility

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: My NCCC credits transferred very easily and I was rewarded them all, although most were for electives. For some classes there are different times of the day and different times of the week to take them, which can leave a need opening for another class or a much needed nap.

Academic Flexibility: Credits transferred for me very easily. Courses I had taken transferred as electives and core requirements which allows me to graduate on time.

Academic Flexibility: Get your Associate's and transfer as a Junior. Fight for it and add up your credits to double check the planning sheet. This will help you save loads of money and time. Better yet, if you're in High School check out the program you are interested and find a nearby community college that has a transfer agreement with Paul Smith's! This college is worth the immersion in nature if you like hiking etc. but 2 years is more than enough with the extreme cold and cost. Schedule classes yourself and make your adviser simply sign the paperwork so that you don't end up here another semester as some people have. Be motivated enough to get above a 3.0, this school has the right kinds of aid for anyone to do this! Remember that as a small campus some classes are only scheduled once a year (ie Biology I in the fall and Biology II in the Spring) or every other year (ie Wetlands) so plan accordingly! Make sure as a Junior that you are taking any required or desired courses that are only offered every other year so that you can graduate on time or avoid the hassle of finding a suitable substitution. You are sure to find that a minor you are interested in (ie GIS, Chemistry, Biology etc. ) is only a class or two more than you are already required to take, so consider adding a minor! If you are locked out of a course talk to the dean, you can often be squeezed in, have pre-req's dropped (in certain circumstances) or do the course as an independent study if the professor is willing. They were willing to take a UHS research class that my community college would not, so be sure to send all transcripts and apply for work experience credit if you have it! Every bit counts, good luck.

Academic Flexibility: Have not had to transfer any credits.

I've had no problems signing up for the classes I've wanted / needed. It's been a great experience so far.
