Students Get Inside Advice on Transfer Opportunities
Panelists offer strategies and advice on Transfers and Transitions
This blog post is part of a series of recordings for Future College Students, which aim to provide resources and strategies to students as they navigate the various transitions of their college career.
This week, a panel of experts speak on managing the transfer process, from applications to credits.
As colleges across the country prepare for the upcoming fall semester, students are facing new and expanded challenges. Many are reevaluating their college plans due to the mounting economic consequences and the very real shifts in the college experience amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. But whether students are considering making a change to their plans or developing them now, transfer pathways can make college more affordable and open up new opportunities.
On July 15, College Promise hosted a virtual webinar on Transfers and Transition In response to students, parents, and educators questions about the transfer process. A panel of experts discussed the transfer options available to students and shared advice on how to manage the process successfully. The panel, featuring, Christin Grissom, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society; Emily Demsetz, Matriculate; Jessica Rodriguez, Richmond Promise, covered transfer credits and the best programs for transfers, as well as, tips for students who will be navigating the many transitions ahead this fall. Attendees included many current college students considering their transfer options and college counselors seeking to guide their students through the process. The panelists agreed that in this challenging time students should consider all their options and know that there is no single right path through college, only the right path for them. Listen to the conversation above to learn more.
“If you are enrolled in a community college, it’s never to early to start planning your transfer.”
