The Transfer Center at Salt Lake Community College will host events this semester to connect students with local four year institutions.
These events can provide students with information to help with the process of transferring to a four year college or university. General transfer information, recruiting, how to apply and admissions information will be available for students at these events.
The events include the College and University Fair and Transfer Days. The College and University Fair is where many different colleges and universities gather to answer questions. It will be held Oct. 22.
On Transfer Days, different departments from one school bring in their program and admissions advisors to showcase their school. Transfer days will be in September in the Student Center events hallway on Taylorsville Redwood Campus.
“Last year Utah State University came and admitted students right there,” said academic advisor Mike Atkinson from SLCC Transfer Center. “They gave out over $114,000 in scholarships that day to students that got admitted, that met their requirements for admissions and their scholarship requirements. If you knew for sure that you were going to Utah State, there’s a great chance that you could have gotten a scholarship. Plus Utah State would bring their Aggie Ice Cream down.”
Throughout the semester several universities and colleges such as the University of Utah and Westminster College have on-going general advisors available on campus to talk one-on-one with students about the admittance process, transferring courses and various programs from the schools.
