Ancilla College is touting its success attracting major Indiana colleges to speak with students about transferring to a baccalaureate program upon completion of their degree.
The two-year liberal arts school says it hosted a “Transfer Fair” last week with 19 colleges and universities in attendance. Officials with Ancilla College say they have spent years developing relationships with other schools in the Hoosier state to make the transfer process easy for students.
The idea is to save local high school students money on their first two years of college while affording them the opportunity to complete any general coursework required for a four-year degree.
So long as modest academic standards are met, much of that coursework can be transferred for credit at a four-year institution.
Butler, Purdue, Valparaiso, Goshen College were in attendance, among others.
The Transfer Fair is considered the first step in helping students make the transition to another school.
