College students looking to transfer college credits or associate degrees to a four-year institution will have the opportunity to 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. EST at http://transfermadness.org.
Now in its second year, Transfer Madness connects students from Gateway Community and Technical College and the other 15 colleges in the Kentucky Community and Technical College System to advisors from more than 20 four-year institutions. Students can chat live with admissions representatives and advisors at the universities of their choice, download e-brochures, find out about scholarships, and register for prizes.
The Transfer Madness roster includes Northern Kentucky University and Kentucky’s other public universities, the colleges of KCTCS, 15 independent colleges and universities, and two for-profit institutions. Also represented with online booths at the fair include the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority, staff from CPE’s KnowHow2Transfer.org website, and CollegeFish.org, an online resource to promote positive two-year completion and transfer pathways.
“Transfer Madness is a great way for anyone interested in transfer to obtain more information about higher education opportunities across Kentucky,” said Mike Rosenberg, Gateway director of transfer. “Current college students, high school students, parents, anyone can sign in and attend. The online transfer fair enables people to access the event at a time that suits their school, family and work schedules.”
Transfer Madness is sponsored by the Council on Postsecondary Education and the participating colleges and universities. To register for the event and associated prizes, and to view the list of the participating colleges, universities and other partners, go to http://www.transfermadness.org.
