Reps from 15 four-year campuses slated for College Visit Night and Transfer Fair Nov. 14
Nov. 9, 2017
Nicolet College will hold a College Visit Night and Transfer Fair Tuesday, Nov. 14, for anyone interested in learning more about attending Nicolet as well as transferring Nicolet credits to earn a bachelor’s degree.
Representatives from 15 different four-year campuses will be on hand to discuss transfer options and the pathways to earning a bachelor’s degree.
Both events will run from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the Lakeside Center on the Rhinelander campus, one mile south of the city just off of Hwy. G.
Those attending will be able to meet one-on-one with a Career Coach to map out a plan for college, complete the admissions process, and find out about financial aid and scholarships to help pay for college.
Nicolet instructors will also be on hand to talk with prospective students about the college’s academic programs.
“This is a great way for anyone to see what the college has to offer and experience the campus to see if Nicolet is right for them,” said Nicolet Career Coach Angeline von Neupert.
Many Nicolet students with their sights set on a bachelor’s degree complete most, if not all, of the first two years of the degree at Nicolet before transferring to a four-year campus, said Teresa Rose, Nicolet transfer coordinator.
“What’s nice about the Transfer Fair is that it gives people the opportunity to visit with representatives from numerous four-year colleges and universities in one location,” Rose noted.
Along with the University Transfer Liberal Arts program, Nicolet also offers many two-year occupational associate’s degree programs where students can transfer their Nicolet credits into a bachelor’s degree program.
Colleges and universities attending the Transfer Fair will include the University of Wisconsin-Madison, UW-Stevens Point School of Education, UW-Stevens Point College of Natural Resources, UW-Green Bay, UW-La Crosse, UW-Milwaukee, UW-Oshkosh, UW-Platteville, UW-Stout, Northern Michigan University, Northland College, Franklin University, Lakeland University, Ottawa University, and Upper Iowa University.
“Both the College Visit Night and Transfer Fair are open to anyone and everyone,” von Neupert noted. “This includes high school students and their parents looking at colleges, current Nicolet students looking to transfer, and members of the general public looking to explore their higher education options.”
