MSU to participate in online ‘Transfer Madness’

Feb. 20, 2013 — Help is on the way for Kentucky college students interested in transferring their credits or associate degree to a four-year university. On Wednesday, March 6, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., the state’s colleges and universities will host “Transfer Madness,” the first entirely online, statewide transfer fair where students can chat with transfer advisors, search for scholarships, download materials and get questions answered.

Morehead State University will participate in the online transfer fair.

“We are always interested in seeking out new channels to reach transfer students and I feel that this is a wonderful initiative. We hope that Transfer Madness will provide us with yet another avenue to showcase the great opportunities that we have available for transfer students here at Morehead State,” said Jen Timmermann, transfer senior enrollment services counselor.

Students can register early for Transfer Madness at www.transfermadness.org.

Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson made the announcement Wednesday at a news conference at the Capitol. He was joined by Bob King, president of the Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE), Dr. Jay Box, chancellor of the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS), as well as several transfer students, who spoke on the importance of transfer to their educational and career goals. Legislators and representatives from the 25 participating universities and KCTCS also attended.

“I applaud our education partners for helping promote awareness about the seamless transition from high school to community and technical colleges to our four-year institutions,” said Lt. Gov. Abramson.

“The best way to improve the quality of Kentucky’s workforce and give our companies strong employees is through a top-notch education system that aggressively promotes a college-going culture that has no barriers in credit transfers.”

Organizers hope the convenience of an online transfer fair will boost student participation since students can access the event from the comfort of their home and at a time that suits their family and work schedules.
