|At LSC-Kingwood’s Transfer Fair, students and the community will have a chance to visit with various educational institutions and learn more about the programs each one offers. The fair is on Oct. 20 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.|
People interested in obtaining their associate, bachelor’s or graduate degrees are invited to attend Lone Star College-Kingwood’s Transfer Fair.
The free college fair will take place on Thursday, Oct. 20 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. in the Student Conference Center. The event will host colleges and universities from across the state that are interested in helping 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.
LSC-Kingwood has held this event on campus for the past six years. The Transfer Fair is part of a weeklong 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 students who need them.
“This transfer fair will give students and the public an opportunity to shop around, examine several options, collect transfer materials, speak with a representative and make a decision on what school suits their needs,” Keenan said.
