Taking their cue from a certain well-known basketball event, the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education is calling its push to encourage Kentucky students to apply their community college credits toward a bachelor's degree "Transfer Madness."
“This allows students really to do a fairly deep exploration of your campuses without ever having to leave home,” said Robert King, president of the council.
He says the event will take place entirely at transfer-madness-dot-org and serve as a one-stop shop for students curious about continuing their education at a four-year institution.
“Plenty of both visual opportunities to explore the campuses, see what they look like, capacity to understand what the financial issues are in terms of transferring understanding what tuition and fees are what kinds of scholarships and resources and financial aid are available," King said.
Twenty-six of Kentucky's four-year colleges, including all public institutions, and the Kentucky Community and Technical College and the Kentucky Education Higher Assistance Authority are participating in the event. It runs from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday.
