The path to a degree can be long, winding and confusing, but area students looking for the way can find directions next week.
Elizabethtown Community and Technical College hosts a college transfer fair from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 10 in the atrium of the Regional Postsecondary Center at the school. The fair is open to the public and is one of many organized this spring by the Kentucky Community and Technical College System. The fairs are sponsored by the Kentucky Association of College Registrars and Admissions Officers.
Representatives from a number of four-year colleges and universities will attend to answer questions about transferring from one institution to another. Universities such as Western Kentucky University, the University of Kentucky, the University of Louisville, Eastern Kentucky University and others will be present.
Students considering or planning to change schools can learn about how credits transfer to their institution of choice, information about degree programs and campuses, and how to apply for admission, financial aid and scholarships, said Sharon Spratt, director of counseling at ECTC.
While Spratt’s office regularly answers questions about transferring, the fair provides opportunity for students because “all of these colleges are here on one day,” she said. For undecided students, it’s a good way to browse the offerings of multiple higher education institutions.
