Central Texas College is partnering with Service to School to host a Virtual College Transfer Fair from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on November 17.
The event is designed to provide active duty personnel and veterans with information on pathways from community colleges to top universities.
Guests can speak with college officials, get help with admissions applications, explore resources for military veterans, and get answers to questions in real time.
Registration for the Virtual University Transfer Fair is available online at ctc4.me/VirtualTransferFair.
“After logging in to register, guests will create an account and complete the registration form,” said Barbara Merlo, CTC Marketing Director. “From there, registrants can explore the information about participating schools available during the Transfer Fair. They will also receive email reminders about the event, which include a link to log in and join the virtual event from any device.
Once logged into the transfer fair, “attendees” will be able to connect directly with admissions officers from partner colleges of top education programs.
“Each representative of the participating schools will have a booth to chat live with the guests,” said Merlo. “Participants can click on as many booths as they like during the event and are encouraged to share their backgrounds and experiences to further enhance interaction with college representatives. “
Besides the CTC, other schools participating in the Transfer College virtual fair are Amherst College, Bates College, Bowdin College, Carleton College, Emory University, Johns Hopkins University, Pomona College, Smith College, Swarthmore College and Williams College.
Service to School is a non-profit organization that provides free college and graduate study application advice to veterans and active duty personnel.
