Covid-19 has altered how community college students will transfer to universities. With TCC campuses closed, many students don’t know the necessary steps to transfer to universities. Students can still access the campus transfer centers located on each campus for help.

NW transfer center coordinator Rachelle Montero said the transfer center is a great way to
search for the best options. “Thetransfer center assists with transfer advising to ensure you are picking the right courses based upon major,” Montero said. The transfer
center hours on all campuses are open from nine a.m to 6 p.m Monday through Friday and closed on Saturday and Sunday.

Students should make sure that their credit hours are transferable to the college of their choice. Not all credit hours go to all universities, so it is important to check that information.

South student Yulonda Smith says “The transfer center was useful with information about campuses.” She learned about the next steps that she needs to take about applying for scholarships, grants and about the college of her choice.

Another student at TR who will transfer next semester said she likes how easy and straightforward the university was about what they had to offer to her when it came about applying there and the cost of tuition.

She said the transfer center provides a smooth transition from TCC to a university. After a quick virtual tour of the campus, she enjoyed the scenery too. The transfer center also has 30-minute virtual tours of the campuses students are inquiring about. TR transfer coordinator Laura Escamilla said these are held 1 p.m. every Tuesday through Nov. 17.
