Online 'Transfer Madness' Commences Tomorrow

Published: Mar 5, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 5, 2013) — "Transfer Madness," the first entirely online, statewide transfer fair will commence tomorrow, March 6, at 10 a.m., providing help for Kentucky college students who are interested in transferring credits or associate degrees to four-year universities. The event will allow students to chat online with transfer advisers, search for scholarships, download materials and get questions answered from representatives from Kentucky colleges and universities.

 

"Transfer Madness" was created for current Kentucky Community and Technical College System students preparing to transfer to a four-year college, high school students planning to attend a KCTCS college en route to a four-year degree and non-KCTCS students looking to transfer to another college. The program aims to address and alleviate students' concerns regarding transferring, as well as to provide a convenient avenue for students to ask questions related to transferring.

 

Participants in Transfer Madness can also download informational materials from the colleges, watch videos and register for prizes.

 

The UK Office of Undergraduate Admissions, partnering with UK Undergraduate Studies, will have an admissions officer and an academic adviser online from 10 a.m.–10 p.m.

 

Ryan Wagoner, assistant director of admissions for transfer services in UK's Office of Undergraduate Admissions, said that the event will aid transfer students in multiple ways.

 

"In an effort to meet with students outside of traditional business hours as well as virtually meet with students throughout the state and country, this event will provide a unique opportunity for prospective students who are interested in transferring to UK to receive answers to the questions they have," Wagoner said. "Through the excellent partnership between Admissions and Undergraduate Studies, we will have feedback for students from the admissions process and transfer equivalencies, to course planning and major exploration."  

 

Students can register early for Transfer Madness at http://www.transfermadness.org.

 

“I applaud our education partners for helping promote awareness about the seamless transition from high school to community and technical colleges to our four-year institutions,” Lt. Governor Jerry Abramson said. “The best way to improve the quality of Kentucky’s workforce and give our companies strong employees is through a top-notch education system that aggressively promotes a college-going culture that has no barriers in credit transfers.”

 

Organizers hope the convenience of an online transfer fair will boost student participation since students can access the event from the comfort of their home and at a time that suits their family and work schedules.

 

“We are excited to bring together colleges and universities with our education partners to smooth the transfer process for students,” said Bob King, president of the Council on Postsecondary Education. “Transfer Madness supports the state’s Stronger by Degrees strategic plan as well as House Bill 160, both of which call for improving the quality of Kentucky’s workforce by increasing the number of Kentuckians who earn a bachelor’s degree. Starting at KCTCS is a great way to help achieve that goal."
