5How long does my sport scholarship last?
Sports scholarships are given on a yearly basis. Many athletes and their families make the mistake of believing that athletic scholarships last all four years of college, but that's not true. It means that they award you financial aid one year at a time. At the end of each year, scholarships are renewed by the coach and athletic department, provided that you remain eligible throughout the year.

The SAT test (Scholastic Assessment Test), is a standardized test widely used for college admissions in the United States. All student athletes from all countries must take the SAT or the alternative ACT. The SAT consist of a four hour long test involving Evidence-based reading (English), Math and Writing.
2Can I change my major during my time at college?
Yes, you can. Depending on how many credits/semesters you have completed you still have the flexibility to change your major without losing progress towards your degree. Usually this is something you can do during your freshman/sophomore year of college.
3Can I use my college credits towards university back at home?
Yes you can, but bear in mind that the college credits needs to be within the same direction of studies as you plan to go back home. If you transfer back to a University back home after a year, your General Education classes from college most likely won’t be transferred, as they don’t correlate with the requirements for the degree back home.
