Anyone interested in obtaining their bachelor or graduate degrees are invited to attend Lone Star College-Kingwood’s Transfer Fair.
The free college fair will take place on March 2 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at LSC-Atascocita Center. Colleges and universities across the state will attend to help people meet their academic goals.
“LSC-Kingwood is committed to helping our students and the community make a smooth transition from community college to a four-year university. Instead of having students contact each school individually, we wanted to bring the schools to them,” said Nicole Keenan, director of admissions and outreach.
The Transfer Fair is an event to assist students with their educational journey. At the fair, representatives from approximately 25 institutions will provide information regarding transfer admissions, student services, financial aid and more. Students are encouraged to bring copies of their transcripts to discuss transfer options. On the spot advising will be available. The college will have unofficial transcripts available for LSC-Kingwood students who need them.
“The goal of this year’s event is to provide opportunities for students to meet with four-year colleges and to give them needed support as they transition from LSC-Kingwood to their chosen university,” said Zabrina Scott, outreach and recruitment representative and event coordinator.
To date, colleges and universities that will attend are the University of Texas at San Antonio, University of St. Thomas, Texas State University, Texas A&M University, Lamar University, Stephen F. Austin State University and the University of Houston. For more information, email Kingwood.Advising@LoneStar.edu.
