Transfer Day at CCC is January 24

 Many students choose Clackamas Community College to begin their four-year degree and transfer to a university after completing two years of college. On Thursday, Jan. 24, students will have an opportunity to meet with representatives from state universities, private and out-of-state colleges. Transfer Day at CCC takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Gregory Forum.

Oregon Transfer Days is a statewide collaboration between Oregon’s 17 community colleges and four-year universities. The event was first launched by a coalition of admissions professionals in 2007 to help students understand and prepare for the next step in their college careers.

Students participating in Transfer Day will gain insight into each school’s offerings, admissions requirements, recommended courses, navigating college costs and financial aid, and tools to make the transition as seamless as possible.

More students are choosing to begin their higher education at community colleges before transferring to a four-year school. At Oregon’s public universities alone, the numbers of community college students transferring increased significantly by 70 percent in the last 10 years, from 4,159 in 2001-02 to 7,065 in 2011-12.

The increase can be attributed to numerous factors and new partnerships, including co-enrollment and articulation agreements between community colleges and universities; new options such as the Oregon Transfer Module, which enable students to ensure that their credits will apply at a four-year institution; and a greater recognition that having a four-year degree provides additional opportunities in the job market.

CCC has recently increased services available to students planning to transfer to four-year colleges. A counselor and adviser have been designated to work with students planning to transfer. In addition, a new Transfer Center has been added to the student services available in the Community Center. The Transfer Center offers resources for students researching four-year school offerings and requirements, as well as scholarship information.
