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 credits to successfully continue their education,” stated by Shakira Grubbs, Vice Chancellor. She also goes on to say, “Students can visit with representatives from a number of colleges and universities and begin building their futures.”
Representatives from over 25 different colleges and universities will be on hand at this year’s College Transfer Fair. Many will be from the tristate area, including Xavier University, University of Cincinnati, Indiana University East, Morehead University, Northern Kentucky University, Miami University, and Trine University. Attendees will receive a Transfer College Information Guide, and have the chance to enter a drawing for door prizes.
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.
