I have finally gotten everything squared away to attend Western Oregon University. I was accept back in March but due to waiting for paperwork to be sent across the states. I am still fighting so I do not have to pay out of state tuition. It seems that Oregon's law is that you are required to be living in the state for a year or more before the start of the term in order to be qualified. Regardless of that I was able to get registered for classes on the college's transfer day. I am very glad I attended this as the system here is very different from where I come from.
To start the credit amount is a lot higher but this is due to the term system. I am used to the semester system where you have only fall and spring not Fall, winter , and spring. This means instead of having 30 credits a year I should have somewhere near 45. I am really looking forward to have classes only last 2 months instead of 3 1/2. I felt like classes lasted a long time and look forward to them being over sooner. Also all my credits transferred which was a pleasant surprise to me.
The other difference is how many credits classes are worth. For example some of my science classes were worth a total of 4 credits (3 class and 1 lab) and are not worth 6 (4.5 lecture and 1.5 Lab). It makes me feel like I accomplished more then I have.
TL;DR -> I transferred schools and they go on term system not semesters.
Feel free to comment about your experiences with transferring schools. Maybe something to watch out for.
