Students concerned about the transfer process should worry no more: Southwestern Illinois College is prepared to help ease the transition into a four-year college or university at Transfer Night this October.
More than 25 Midwestern colleges and universities will have representatives on-hand to answer questions and discuss their programs with students Oct. 24, from 5-7 p.m. in the SWIC Liberal Arts Complex second-floor lobby, 2500 Carlyle Ave.
"Our workshops will help students gain the knowledge they need to move from SWIC to a four-year institution of their choice," said SWIC Counselor and Transfer Night Coordinator Michelle Luraschi. "Even though it is October, getting started sooner will help them move on toward successfully finishing their academic career and their four-year degree."
Workshops include information on degree programs, the application process, course transfers, financial aid and scholarships. A representative for each school will be on hand to provide the information, ensuring accuracy.
The Counseling Center and the Minority Transfer and Multicultural Student Services Center will sponsor the event.
The event is free and open to the public, although a reservation is recommended beforehand. Refreshments and door prizes will be given out as well.
Make reservations or get more information, or call the Counseling Center at 618-235-2700, ext. 5206.
