Virtual transfer fairs give you an opportunity to meet directly with admissions officers from both public and private colleges. While virtual fairs are not new, they are particularly helpful in this time of pandemic when in-person meetings may not be available. You will have an opportunity to hear a presentation from the colleges in your chosen sessions and also ask questions.
These events are being offered by the NJ Transfer Counselors Association comprised of member colleges from across the state. If you are interested in
pursuing admission at out-of-state colleges check with your community college’s transfer or advising office as they may have scheduled events for colleges outside of NJ. Also, the NACAC organization hosts large-scale college fairs that are free and open to the public. For information go to www.nacacfairs.org/virtual
You will need to register in advance for the fairs, and you can sign up for as many sessions as you wish. Keep in mind the Zoom site license limits the
total number of participants, so you are wise to register early for the sessions you wish. You can “visit” up to 12 colleges for each of the five days of the transfer fairs. Each session will include presentations about transfer admission to each college followed by time for questions and
Zoom is free and easy to use. If you have never used it you can try it out by signing up at https://zoom.us/freesignup/
Zoom allows you to turn your camera off if you wish, but we recommend you keep it on to get the full experience of a transfer fair. Zoom also allows you to record sessions, so you can review information at a later date.
The four-year colleges will provide complete information about their transfer admission process. You will also learn about transfer agreements and
transfer scholarships. You will also want to use www.njtransfer.org that has a tab labeled “explore NJ colleges” where you will find details on transfer admission to each of the colleges.
