KCTCS Offering Virtual Transfer Fair Next Week

March 15, 2021

One part of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System’s (KCTCS) mission is preparing students to transfer to universities. Last year, more than 14,000 KCTCS graduates transferred to four-year institutions.

During the week of March 22, students who intend to transfer can learn more about their university of interest and connect with representatives. Thirty-five colleges and universities from Kentucky and outside the state will participate. Students will have an opportunity to learn about scholarships, acceptance requirements and programs of interest. 

“Online transfer fairs are a convenient way for our current students to connect with our university partners,” said KCTCS Chancellor Kris Williams. “In today’s world, it’s also a safe way for students to learn as much as possible about their transfer options.”

Statistics show community college transfer students do as well or better than students who started their education at a university. Further, KCTCS students can save as much as $32,000 by taking their first two years at a community college. Credits transfer easily and there are many scholarship opportunities available, including two plus two programs offered by some universities.
