THE STUDENT WHO WANTS TO TRANSFER TO A
DIFFERENT COLLEGE
Students may not always be satisfied with the department or
college into which they were originally admitted. They may
decide to transfer from one college to another within a
university. The procedures for internal transfer vary among
institutions. Once again, the academic advising office at your
institution is likely best-suited to offer advice to the student
and ensure that proper procedures are followed.
JANE PAULEY
Jane Pauley, NBC news broadcaster, former co-
anchor of Today and Dateline, wrote about her
experience with depression and bipolar illnesses
in her book Skywriting: A Life Out of the Blue. She
discussed her need for medication to control
mood swings. “It just is stabilizing. It allows me to
be who I am. A mood disorder is dangerous.
You’ve got to get those dramatic waves of highs
and lows stabilized,” she said.
