(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) - Ivy Tech Community College’s Lawrenceburg Campus invites the community to their College Transfer Fair to show students how they can transfer their college credits to continue their education further. The fair will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 25 at the Student Lounge on the third floor of the Ivy Tech Lawrenceburg Riverfront Campus, 50 Walnut Street.
The free event is open to anyone interested in learning how Ivy Tech credits and degrees transfer to four-year colleges. Current Ivy Tech students and high school students taking Ivy Tech dual credit or dual enrollment courses are encouraged to attend.
“The College Transfer Fair is an informative opportunity for our students to learn how to transfer their credentials or credits to successfully continue their education,” said Shakira Grubbs, vice chancellor of enrollment services, Ivy Tech Community College Lawrenceburg. “Students can visit with representatives from a number of colleges and universities and continue building their futures.”
Representatives from more than 20 different colleges and universities will be on available at this year’s College Transfer Fair. Many will be from the tristate area, including University of Cincinnati, Indiana University East (IU East), Morehead University, Northern Kentucky University, Miami University, and University of Kentucky. Attendees will receive a Transfer College Information Guide and have the chance to win a scholarship and a free class.
Ivy Tech offers the Transfer General Education Core (TGEC), which enables students to earn 30 credit hours in core college courses that by state mandate are transferrable to all public universities in Indiana. In addition, the College offers Transfer Single Articulation Pathways (TSAPs), giving students who earn an associate degree the possibility of transferring to any state institution of higher education as a junior to pursue a bachelor’s degree.
A partnership with IU East provides students with an opportunity to complete a four-year degree close to home. Students begin at Ivy Tech and later transfer their credits to IU East, which offers courses in Lawrenceburg. From there students can continue to complete credits in order to earn a Bachelor’s degree.
Ivy Tech offers a wide variety of associate degrees as well as certificates and technical certificate programs in the fields of healthcare, business, industrial-technical training, human services, and general studies. Most credits earned at Ivy Tech are transferable to any of the state’s four-year public universities. Courses are conveniently offered at campuses in Lawrenceburg and Batesville.
