The event will take place Wednesday, April 6, 2022, from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm PDT and is open to all community college students, faculty, and staff. Over 60 university representatives from institutions representing the University of California (UC), California State University (CSU), in-state private schools, and out-of-state schools will be sharing admissions information for prospective students. Sessions will begin every forty-five minutes throughout the event and participants may choose the sessions they wish to attend.
Cassandra Nafziger, General Counselor and Transfer Center Coordinator, said, “Transfer fairs are extremely important because they expose students to a variety of university options. Students get the opportunity to hear about these options directly from undergraduate advisors from participating institutions and students can ask questions that are relevant to their individual interests and needs. We are very grateful and excited to be partnering with other Inland Empire community colleges to bring this fair to our students.”
With more than 2.1 million students at 116 colleges, the California Community Colleges is the largest higher education system in the country. One in every four community college students in the nation attends a California community college.
