Del Mar College will host its annual Transfer Day College Fair on Oct. 8. The event, from 9-11 a.m. in the Harvin Center on East Campus, is expected to draw dozes of colleges and universities. Representatives will be available to talk with students about their transfer options.
Sara King, Del Mar’s coordinator of recruitment, said 33 of the schools are in Texas, both public and private, and three offer primarily online programs.
“Nine out of 10 arts and science majors transfer to a university” after Del Mar, King said. She added that about 46 of them go on to Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.
Universities will be on hand to provide transfer information including admissions requirements, transfer scholarships and major- and department-specific information. Each university will each have a separate information table so that students have the opportunity to walk around and view the variety of opportunities that are available after completing their studies at Del Mar College.
King advised anyone interested in transferring to attend the event.
“If they aren’t able to stay to chat, each university will have transfer materials and business cards that our students can quickly grab before heading into their next class,” King said.
Anyone unable to attend will still have a chance to connect with other colleges.
“Universities do continue to stop by the campus throughout the year to set up information tables in the Harvin Center, but this is a one-stop shop with all of the major universities that our students transfer to in one place at one time,” King said.
