Advising

Virtual Spring Transfer Fair

Thursday, May 21 | 1-3 p.m.

The Transfer Fair is an event at Edmonds where Admissions representatives from four-year colleges and universities will be available to share information about their institution. Each representative will have his or her own Zoom meeting where they can connect with students.

Students are encouraged to go from Zoom meeting to Zoom meeting using the links below and ask your questions about transferring.

The fair is a great opportunity for you to explore transfer options, learn about the process of applying to colleges and universities, and find out what you need to do or have in order to transfer successfully to the school that is right for you.

The Admissions representatives can provide you with more information regarding admissions requirements, programs/majors and financial aid/scholarships. Not sure what to talk about? Feel free to use our suggested questions below!
