Gadsden State to observe National Transfer Week with transfer fairs

Gadsden, Ala. -- Gadsden State Community College is joining with other colleges and universities in recognizing National Transfer Student Week Oct. 18-22 by hosting student transfer fairs from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Oct. 19 at the Beck Conference Center on the Wallace Drive Campus and Oct. 20 at the Learning Resource Center on the Ayers Campus.  

“October is a notable month for students interested in transferring to a four-year college or university after completing a degree at Gadsden State,” said Dr. Dana Davis, director of Advising. “This is a great opportunity for students to learn about various options available to them. The event is not only for those in traditional academic programs but also for students who may want to pursue a higher degree after completing a program in a technical or health science area.”

Interested students are invited to meet with representatives from over 20 colleges and universities and receive information on admissions, scholarships, financial aid and housing.  Many colleges and universities provide an opportunity for students to apply for free during this time.

“If codes are required for those colleges allowing student to apply for free, those will be available from the Advisement Resource Center, Student Support Services, posted on Blackboard and will be available from college representatives at the transfer fairs,” Davis said.
