KY Higher Education Institutions Partner to Provide Virtual Transfer Fair
Somerset Community College (SCC) students who wish to transfer their credits or associate degree to a four-year institution will have the opportunity to connect with those institutions, ask questions and better prepare for their future during a Transfer Madness fair. Transfer Madness will be Thursday, March 26 from 2 p.m. 8 p.m. EST (1 p.m. 7 p.m. CDT).
Transfer Madness is the only online, statewide transfer fair where students can chat online with transfer advisors, search for scholarships, download materials and get questions answered at a time that suits their family and work schedules. Application fees will be waived for those who visit a booth during Transfer Madness.
The event is being sponsored by the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) and the Council on Postsecondary Education. This year 22 Kentucky four-year institutions are participating in addition to KCTCS.
Transfer Madness supports the councils Stronger by Degrees strategic plan to improve the quality of Kentuckys workforce by increasing the number of students who transfer from KCTCS colleges to four-year institutions. One of the goals of House Bill 160 (2010) is to eliminate the barriers students encounter when trying to transfer to a four-year institution, and one of the barriers is a lack of information and engagement between students and transferring institutions.
