Community college students should attend a college transfer fair

Wednesday, April 11, 2012
If your college plans involve attending a 2-year or community college and then completing your degree at a 4-year college or university, you should be sure to attend a college transfer fair.

Many community colleges host these events at least once a year to help students understand the transfer process and to introduce them to a number of colleges that might fulfill their education goals. A college transfer fair is much like the typical college fair, in which representatives from numerous colleges and universities from throughout the country are present to provide information on their programs, campus life, and admissions policies as they pertain to transfer students.

The transfer process requires that you keep track of your credits and degree requirements in order to optimize your chances of being accepted at your 4-year college of choice. Before you attend a college fair, you should meet with a transfer counselor to determine if you are on track to transfer after earning your associate’s degree.

In preparation for the college transfer fair you should write down a list of questions you wish to ask the representatives. For instance, does the school have the college major you are interested in pursuing? Ask how many credits will carry over. Will you be able to enter as a college junior or will you need to take additional general education or core courses? You may also want to ask if the school requires your high school transcript and SAT or ACT scores. Be sure to inquire about the availability of scholarships or financial aid specifically for transfer students.

After attending the college transfer fair, review all the material you have received and the answers to your questions. This information combined with the assistance you will receive from your transfer counselor can help you make the transfer decision that is best for you and your career.ADNFCR-16000756-ID-800750830-ADNFCR - helping you find colleges and universities that offer the accredited programs that most interest you.
