Got Credits? Take Part in 'Transfer Madness’ Mar. 5

college studentsBOWLING GREEN, Ky. (2/28/14) — 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, Mar. 5 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. CST.

Transfer Madness connects students from the 16 colleges of 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.

Governor Steve Beshear and Kentucky Community and Technical College System President Michael B. McCall helped launch the event at a press conference on Wednesday, Feb. 26 in Frankfort. KCTCS transfer students also participated, along with other state education leaders.

“We have worked hard to create a ‘transfer-friendly’ postsecondary education system,” said Beshear. “And we are making progress, with an almost 30 percent increase in KCTCS transfers to public and private institutions over the past five years.”

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.

“Choosing one of Kentucky's outstanding universities at which to complete a bachelor's degree can be a daunting task for community college transfer students,” says Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College President, Dr. Phillip Neal. “The Transfer Madness event is a unique virtual opportunity to conduct research and build linkages with more than a dozen four-year institutions in the same environment. It is a one-stop-shop that maximizes a student's contact with institutional officials while minimizing their travel and expense.”

High school students who plan to attend a community college before transferring and four-year college students considering a transfer are invited to participate. The online transfer fair enables students to access the event at a time that suits their school, family and work schedules.

SKYCTC will offer assistance to student the day of the event in the Student Success Center on the College’s Main Campus.
