El Paso Community College Career Services Department now has representatives from nearby universities coming to visit EPCC campuses for Transfer Fairs.
Universities such as Howard Payne, New Mexico State, Texas Tech, UTEP and Wayland Baptist will be meeting with students at various campus locations and times.
“This Transfer Services Center is part of Career Services,” said Erick Morales, UTEP Representative Admission Counselor for EPCC.

“We are the only one at EPCC and we’re here for students who are ready to transfer or move on to the next college.”
These available transfer services are for the students who are interested in furthering their education after their graduation from EPCC.
If unable to attend the Transfer Fair, students can also speak to someone on their own time by visiting EPCC Transfer Services Center located on the Valle Verde campus in Room A-1427.
“UTEP is here every week to talk with students, and other colleges come whenever they are in town,” Morales said.
At the Transfer Services Center, students are allowed to come and talk with various university representatives one-on-one or even find the information to contact their university of choice.
Morales said having the center at EPCC is a good thing because students who are transferring to UTEP would not have to travel to the university to turn in transfer forms.
“Students who are wanting to transfer to UTEP can turn in applications and documents here, if they
can’t do it online or make it to UTEP,” he said.
Students who have questions on transferring or would like to talk to a university representative can
check out full details for each Transfer Fair on the online schedule at epcc.edu/careerservices for exact dates and times.
“I’ve been an EPCC student for four years, so I’ve heard about the transfer services EPCC offers,”
said EPCC student Debora Pracht.
“It’s a good thing our college has these transfer fairs for interested students.
“Students need to make sure their classes transfer safely to universities. If they don’t pay attention
their first semester it’s okay, but they should when they are about to graduate and transfer services
