For students with questions and concerns about transferring to other schools, Brazosport College’s 2013 College Transfer Fair has the answers.
Parents, students, teachers and counselors from all area school districts, as well as local private and charter schools, are invited to meet with representatives from a number of colleges and universities at the College Transfer Fair on Monday, Oct. 28.
The event will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the college’s Student Pavilion area. Brazosport College is located at 500 College Drive in Lake Jackson.
More than 30 institutions of higher education will be represented at the College Transfer Fair, including University of Texas, Texas A&M, University of Houston, Sam Houston State, Texas State and University of North Texas, along with a host of others.
Among the types of questions that can be answered on the spot include costs, financial aid, scholarships, academic programs and entrance requirements. Information on admissions and transfers will also be available.
“This is a great opportunity for students and parents to get information about a lot of colleges all at one time,” BC College Transfer Fair Coordinator Phil Robertson said.
The College Transfer Fair is carefully planned to be a valuable, educational and goal-planning resource for area high school communities. The event is an effective, convenient and cost-efficient method to help parents as they develop strategies for their child’s higher education.
The College Transfer Fair is a collaborative effort between BC and the independent school districts of Angleton (AISD), Brazosport (BISD), and Columbia/Brazoria (C/BISD), and is held in the Student Pavilion area, located on the first floor of the college, next to the library. It is accessible from the main entrance. Ample parking is available in the student lot at this entrance.
