The Cadena Transfer Center will host several events during Transfer Awareness Week beginning Monday Oct. 19-23 to prepare students for the Fall 2016 transfer application deadlines.

Important transferring dates for students interested in Fall 2016 transfer:

Appointments with a counselor can be made at the transfer center on Mondays starting at 8 a.m. for a 45 minute session. The session time will be with a transfer-trained counselor that can answer any questions and see if the student meets the transferring criteria. Students can also make appointments with an academic counselor at the Counseling Center above the bookstore.

Monday will begin transfer week with Transfer Basics 101 in Room 212 from 2-3 p.m. The class will inform students about admission requirements, selection criteria and tips to be a successful transfer student.

Tuesday’s events will include a special University of California, Berkeley Virtual Workshop that will explain its admissions requirements and selection process from 12-1 p.m. The Transfer Basics 201 is a 2-3 p.m. class on competitive admissions that will help guide student-transfers into impacted and selective institutions. The day ends with a “Hot Chocolate Mixer” held from 5-7 p.m. which will allow students to converse with FC transfer alumni. Each event will be held in room 212.

Wednesday will be the most important day because of the annual College Fair. It will be held on the Quad from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. and students will be able to approach representatives from CSU, UC, private and out-of-state universities. There will also be a UC Admissions Panel held in Room 224 from 1:30-3 p.m.

A $5 refundable deposit is required, but the event will have a student panel, workshops, info-fair and tours.
