NW-SCC to offer Virtual University Transfer Day for students October 14
October 11, 2021
MUSCLE SHOALS & PHIL CAMPBELL, ALA. -- Northwest-Shoals Community College’s (NW-SCC) Student Support Services (SSS) will provide a Virtual University Transfer Day on Thursday, October 14, 2021, for NW-SCC students interested in nine partnering universities.
Students should sign-up prior to the Virtual University Transfer Day on Thursday, October 14, 2021, at https://nwsccmoodledemo.com/virtualtransfer/virtualtransfer.php.
According to NW-SCC Student Support Services Director, Beth Brewer, SSS would traditionally host an in-person transfer panel to provide students with valuable insights on what college life will be like at a university setting. However, the program is having to handle events slightly different due to COVID-19.
Virtual University Transfer Day provides current NW-SCC students with an opportunity to view customized videos from nine universities. Universities participating include:
Athens State University
Baptist Health Sciences University
University of Alabama
University of Alabama at Birmingham
University of Alabama in Huntsville
University of North Alabama
University of South Alabama
University of West Alabama
“This is a great opportunity to show our students what life is like on different university campuses,” said Brewer. “Many of our students are having to prepare for a big transition to universities at a very difficult time. We want our students to be successful, and we feel like offering them resources such as Virtual University Transfer Day will help.”
