More than 700 pre-registered for Transfer Madness – first statewide, online transfer fair

More than 700 students have pre-registered for Kentucky’s first statewide, entirely online transfer fair to be held Wednesday, March 6, from 10 a.m.-10 p.m. EST here.

Transfer Madness will feature 26 of Kentucky’s four-year colleges, the Kentucky Community and Technical College System, Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority, and the Council’s www.KnowHow2Transfer.org website.

Updated transfer scholarship information featuring all scholarships from participating campuses will be available in a single brochure at the KCTCS virtual booth.

The transfer fair is for KCTCS students interested in applying their credits to a bachelor’s degree and high school students who plan to begin their college experience at KCTCS. The event is also open to all prospective students interested in transferring credits.

In addition to real-time chat with transfer advisers, students can also view and download materials, participate in video chats at some institutions at specified times, search for scholarships, and talk with financial aid experts at the KHEAA booth. Some institutions are offering special incentives and drawings for prizes for visiting their booths.

Students can also check to see how their general education credits transfer and count toward a bachelor’s degree by visiting the Council’s KnowHow2Transfer booth.

All of the state’s public institutions, 16 of the independents and two for-profits will participate. A complete listing is below.
