College transfer questions answered

College students looking to transfer college credits or associate degrees to a fouryear institution can connect with those institutions and get questions answered during a 12-hour online Transfer Madness fair set for Wednesday, March 5, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. at http:// transfermadness.org.

Now in its second year, Transfer Madness connects students from the 16 colleges of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System to advisors from more than 20 fouryear institutions. Students can chat live with admissions representatives and advisors at universities, download e-brochures, find out about scholarships, and register for prizes.

The Transfer Madness roster includes all eight of the state’s public universities, the 16 colleges of KCTCS, and 15 independent colleges and universities, and two for-profit institutions. Also represented with booths at the fair are the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority, staff from CPE’s Know- How2Transfer.org website, and CollegeFish.org, an online resource to promote positive two-year completion and transfer pathways.

High school students who plan to attend a community college before trans- ferring and four-year college students considering a transfer are invited to participate.

At Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College, a Transfer Day will also be held March 18 at Cumberland, March 19 at Middlesboro, and will conclude March 20 at the Whitesburg campus. Each session will be held from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. and students can meet with counselors as well as the SKCTC Transfer Counselor Georgina Billings. She can be reached at 606/589-0853.

Transfer Madness is sponsored by the Council on Postsecondary Education and the participating colleges and universities. To register for the event and prizes, and to view the list of the participating colleges, universities and other partners, go to www.transfermadness.org.
