Mission of the Transfer Day

Transfer Day is to assist students with their transition to university by creating opportunities for students to learn about the transfer options, admissions and program requirements, services, and the opportunities different colleges may offer. 


This is a great opportunity to explore the transfer options, and connect with universities'        advisers/representatives.  You may ask general and/or specific questions to your own transfer status, admission requirements and process, transferring your credits, cost of attendance, scholarships and financial aid availability, services etc.  You may also explore the opportunities that they may offer such as Honors Program, internship, job placement, etc.

Why You Need to Attend

This event will help you to make an informed decision in selecting a university to transfer to.  The more knowledge you have about your choices, your decision in selecting a program and university will be easier and your transition to a four year university will be seamless.

You may connect and network with the university representatives during this fair and learn about their programs, services, financial aid and scholarships, and other opportunities that they may offer.  This will help you to evaluate and compare their offerings with your needs and make an informative decision when you transfer whether it is this year or in the future.
