First thing to do, is to visit the career center or actively find free career assessments online to see what type of work would fit your personality. Once you get your results, meet with a counselor or an advisor to see which major you should declare once you transfer.Then, decide what you are most comfortable with. Do you want to attend a large university or a small university? Do you care if the university has a prestigious title? Most importantly, make sure the university offers exactly what you want for your degree. As an employee at my university of attendance, I have seen many students feeling the need to transfer to another university because we do not offer a degree in their major. You also have to decide if you want to move out of state for school or not. Depending on the distance, figure out if it is worth the commute and if you need to work or find an apartment, or even dorm on campus. There is a lot to consider when looking at a university, but its worth the effort now in order to avoid any future hassles of having to find another university that will accept the courses that you have already taken and if your financial aid (if you have any) will transfer or not. Most importantly, if you can, try to do a campus tour because that makes a huge difference whether you enjoy the campus atmosphere or not.

Good luck with finalizing your decision.

I would look at the degree program to see if it still identifies with the degree you want. Also speak with the school you are potentially transferring to and see if they will accept your credit from the previous university and check the accreditation to see if they are accrediated and if possible in your reserach see the response with companies and potential employers and that university.
