Today, Nov 2., EPCC will be hosting its 2016 Transfer Fair at the Cafeteria Annex from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Representatives from over 15 colleges will attend the 2016 EPCC Transfer Fair.
There will be representatives from over 15 universities and their whole purpose will be to provide information about their schools for future students.
Dina T. Salazar, from Career and Transfer Services, mentioned that this is the time where students will be able to ask questions about transfer scholarships availability, deadlines, tuition costs, university admissions requirements, admission fees and student housing.
“I have never been to a transfer fair before, but I’ve always wanted to go to one. I would love to assist in one because I feel like I would get a better grasp on what school would fit me best. I don’t think I know if any of my friends have been to one honestly. I do want to transfer because I want a master’s degree,” said Brianna Butcher, student at EPCC.
Students at EPCC can benefit from this type of event if they want to plan for a future education, and to know all the possibilities available for them in different universities.
“I did do a transfer fair, like a year and a half ago. It was helpful because it basically streamlined my transfer from EPCC to UTEP. My girlfriend is currently trying to do her transfer stuff and is going to the transfer fair coming up also. And I do want to transfer. I want to transfer to Texas Tech School of Medicine. So, I will be going to this upcoming transfer fair as well,” said Jonathan Jaramillo, student at EPCC and UTEP.
Some of the universities that will be attending our Transfer Fair include Texas Tech University, St. Mary’s University, Western Governors University Texas, Howard Payne University, Our lady of Lake University, Santa Fe University of Art and Design, The University of Texas at El Paso, Sul Ross State University, Grand Canyon University, New Mexico State University, University of Phoenix and many more.
“I have never been to a transfer fair before. I would like to attend one because I would like some help in the transfer process to see which of my credits are transferable, expedite the process of admissions, and see what other options I have. I would like to go to UTEP because it’s here in El Paso and is a good school. It’s also a beautiful campus,” said Kaylie Vasquez, student at EPCC.
