Prepare for Transfer Fair next month

By Katie Cummings - Staff Reporter



If you want to transfer to a four-year college, you can attend two events to get information about colleges and their admissions/transfer programs next month.

The College Transfer Fair is on Wednesday, Feb. 8, in the first floor of the Student Union from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Transfer Portfolio Review Day is on Wednesday, Feb. 8, in the Mt. Constance Room, first floor of the Student Union from 1:30-4 p.m.

More than 25 four-year colleges will be attending the Transfer Fair to answer your questions and provide information about their admissions and transfer programs, ranging from Central Washington University, to Hawaii Pacific University, to the University of Phoenix.

"I believe four-year colleges are looking for students who can bring diverse perspectives and contribute positively to the college and to its student body," said Siew Lai Lilley, the director of the Transfer Center.

The best way to prepare for transferring to a four-year institution is to start early. 

"[Students] should get connected to a faculty adviser early and also take the initiative to do some research on their own regarding the colleges they want to transfer to as well as their major," said Lilley.

After the Transfer Fair, the Transfer Portfolio Review Day will give students an opportunity to get their portfolios reviewed by college admissions representatives from colleges such as Central Washington University, University of Washington, Pacific Lutheran University, and Saint Martin's University.

These representatives will be able to give you personalized feedback on your portfolio and your transfer material. 

"We host two portfolio events per year — during fall and winter quarters. Last fall, we had 35 student participants," said Lilley.

Registration is required. Students can register for free in the Transfer Center or the Advising Front Desk, located on the first floor of Building 6 or online at www.tinyurl.com/wi17tprd. 

Deadline for registration is Tuesday, Jan. 31.
