Great plan. It works best if the Jr college and the University already have a reciprocity plan in place. Don't get the idea that he should be taking general requirements only. He should be setting himself up in his major. Otherwise it may take 5 yrs or more to graduate. If he needs Calculus before Physics and needs Sophomore Physics before Jr and Sr level classes. He better be taking the calculus at the Jr. College. Make sure all of his prerequisites line up and transfer accordingly.
