Gage Ramirez transferred twice in his college career. The first time, he lost almost all of his credits.
It's as common an experience for college and university students as it is frustrating, time consuming and expensive for them, their families and taxpayers: credits that won't transfer, even among public institutions in the same states.
The good news: More colleges and universities are slowly initiating change, making transfer students a priority and lowering the barriers for them to transfer.
