UNT, TCU staffers offer transfer tips for NE students

Perhaps lightening the load of transfer admissions, an admissions counselor from the University of North Texas told NE Campus students that sometimes “D’s make degrees” but not always.

Jacob Eakin and half a dozen other college representatives answered questions at an April 6 session about the transfer process for four-year universities.

“However, if you’re majoring in, let’s say history, and you’re making a D in that course, UNT’s standards will not recognize these credit hours,” Eakin said.

Each representative discussed application fees and deadlines. They agreed that more than 50 percent of students paying for college apply for student loans.

“This may seem scary, but it’s not with proper planning,” Eakin said.

They reminded the audience that transferring was just the preliminary stage of the process.

UNT and Texas Christian University took the stage to talk about their clubs and programs.

“Let it be known that UNT holds the nation’s title for Ultimate Frisbee,” Eakin said.

At TCU, if students don’t find a club that suits them, it takes just 10 people to create an official club of their own.

The representatives said they can open the door to their institutes, but it’s up to the student to walk in.
