Are you thinking about transferring to a four-year institution? Did you know there is an office on campus to help you with your transition?

The Transfer Center offers many services to get you headed in the right direction.

 

One of those is campus tours where the Transfer Center takes groups of students to college campuses to meet with staff, students and advisers, and tour the campus. The dates for tours during the fall semester are:

University of Oklahoma – Sept. 21 and Nov. 10

University of Central Oklahoma – Oct. 5 and Nov. 3

Oklahoma City University – Nov. 9

Also, every semester, the Transfer Center brings in more than 30 four-year institutions to recruit students.

This semester, the Transfer Fair will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wed, Sept. 29, in the Main Building.

Also helpful to students is the Transfer Guide, a resource has a lot of great information about transferring.

The guide, available in the Office of Academic Advising, lists questions to ask when considering where to transfer, scholarship information and university contact information.

For those who prefer online resources, the Transfer Center offers a website.

The website www.occc.edu/TransferCenter has many links that you will find useful in your research on transferring, including the Transfer Equivalency Guides and the Transfer Calendar.

The Equivalency Guides allow you to look up classes you have taken at OCCC and see how they will transfer to various institutions.

The Transfer Calendar has the days and times of all of the campus visits from four-year institution representatives.

Campus visits are encouraged.

Most days you will find a four-year representative on our campus ready to answer your questions.

The days and times of their visits are listed on the Transfer Center website and are posted outside of the Office of Academic Advising.

For questions or to sign up for Campus Tours, please contact Sara McElroy at smcelroy@occc.edu or 682-7567.
