I'm constantly depressed at times and highly stressed out. I need a change of pace, a change of scenery. I need to put my education first and work second. I don't have any fines or anything, so I should be go to go.

And then some things my current school are doing I don't agree with, but that's a different story.
Congratulations on getting accepted into the new school. If you were on financial aid at the other school, you may have to have completed a certain amount of hours before the year is over. That may be the most important thing at this point.

I transferred after my sophomore year from a university that offered me enough aid to the point that I didn't have to take out any loans to a university that only offered loans and a Pell Grant. To me, it was totally worth it. I was much happier at the school to which I transferred. Your happiness is worth the transfer if you think it'll help you to even out school and work and will provide more opportunities. Good luck with everything!

Have you looked for some alternative programs? There are colleges that have courses running just on Saturdays or just weekends, or one week at a time. This is in addition to on line courses, which would reduce your travel time and make it easier to time-shift when you did the work, possibly.
