MCC hosts Transfer Awareness Week

KINGMAN - Of the thousands of universities available to Mohave Community College students, 16 have signed transfer partnership (articulation) agreements with MCC that assure all coursework completed for an MCC associate's degree will be accepted at those universities.

This week, 10 of MCC's articulation partners and three additional schools will be on the MCC campuses so students can have personal meetings with advisors to discuss their plans for higher education and the benefits of attending the various universities. The event is open to MCC students, alumni and the public.

"Our goal for Transfer Awareness Week is to let student know there are options for transfer to a four-year college or university and that a bachelor's degree or higher is possible and attainable," said Jann Woods, dean of student services at MCC.

"Students who are graduating this year will be able to learn firsthand about the transfer application process, majors, student support services and financial aid at the participating schools," Woods said. She also pointed out that some of the visiting schools will be offering on-the-spot scholarships.

"Students who are still working on a degree, or who are just beginning college, can learn about degree requirements at their target university and then work with their MCC advisors to map out a plan to complete a degree at MCC that will transfer with the highest number of credit hours," she added.

On the Neal Campus-Kingman, Northern Arizona University and Dixie State College from Utah will visit with students from 2 to 6 p.m. today through Thursday. In addition, Arizona State, Capella University, Jones International University, Northcentral University, University of Arizona, University of Maryland, University of Phoenix, University of Nevada-Las Vegas and Western International University will be visiting the Kingman campus from 2 to 6 p.m., and Prescott College will be on hand from 2 to 4 p.m.

In addition to speaking with on-site visitors, students will be able to get printed information about Indiana University, Kaplan University, Palmer College of Chiropractic, Regis University, Southern Utah University, Upper Iowa University and Western Governors University, all of which are MCC articulation partners.
