What questions should I ask the community college to make sure that my transition to a four year college has no problems?

I am interested in pursuing a four year civil engineering program and would like to start at a community college and transfer to a four year college.

    Hello Louise!
    This is a great question. I would say the answer is two pronged. DO you have an idea which four year college you'd like to go to? if so I would reach out to their Civil Department and see what classes students are required to take in the first two years. I would also recommend reaching out to their admissions department to see if they have a list of what classes will transfer from your two year college. 
    The admissions department at your two year college should also be able to provide a list of those classes that transfer, but it may not be as comprehensive. 
    Many of your basic math / science (calculus, physics, chemistry etc.) should transfer as well as some of the core curriculum classes. 
    Good luck to you! Engineering is a great field to be in!.
