GRCC is hosting a Transfer Fair next Monday and you won’t want to miss it. It’s a great opportunity to meet representatives from multiple schools, and to ask questions about transfer requirements, transfer dates and deadlines. This event isn’t just for students ready to transfer – it’s for everyone who plans to transfer in the future.

Monday, October 18
10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
First Floor Applied Technology Center

To prepare for the Transfer Fair, librarians recommend that you check out the [Careers & Education] tab found on most Subject Guides. That tab includes information about jobs in a particular field, the job market, professional associations, as well as links to top transfer colleges and universities for your chosen major. You should also check out Transfer Out instructions here.
