Transfer Day 2014 at CCC is January 23

OREGON CITY - The annual Transfer Day event at Clackamas Community College will take place on Thursday, Jan. 23, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Gregory Forum. Transfer Day provides an opportunity for students to meet with representatives from state universities, private and out-of-state colleges.

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 number 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.

Community colleges provide an alternative to students who plan to earn a bachelor's degree at a four-year school. Students who start their four-year degree at a community college save thousands on the cost of their education. Research shows that students who start at a community college and transfer to university have a higher graduation rate than those who start at a university.

Colleges participating in this year's Transfer Day include Pacific, George Fox, University of Oregon, National American University, Pacific Northwest College of Art, University of Phoenix, Marylhurst, Washington State-Vancouver, Western Oregon and many others.
