First of all, only she knows why she transferred. However, many students attend a two-year college first, since in most cases, the tuition is

The Associated Press reported this afternoon that Ms. Palin, the first-term governor of Alaska, began her college career at Hawaii Pacific
University, where she studied for one semester in the fall of 1982.
From there, she spent two semesters at North Idaho College, a two-year institution; two semesters at the flagship University of Idaho; one semester at
Matanuska-Susitna College, a two-year campus of the University of Alaska at Anchorage; and her three final semesters back at the University of Idaho,
where she completed her bachelor’s degree in journalism in 1987.
At North Idaho College, she majored in general studies, according to:
In other words, she probably wasn't sure what she really wanted to do.
The next two were also two-year colleges. One scenario is that she may have taken journalism courses there, for the reason I mentioned, finally
finishing her Bachelor Degree in Journalism at U of Idaha, a 4-year institution.
Of course, only she knows why.
However, as a retired professor, I can tell you that I had many students who followed paths similar to the above.
The bottom line is that she got her degree. That, IMHO, shows determination.
Remember, Bill Gates didn'tr even finish college, and look where he ended up.
