Columbia College Transfer Day and College Night offer all students access to college information

(Sonora, CA) – High school and college students will have a chance to speak in-person to representatives from four-year colleges and universities at Columbia College’s Transfer Day/ College Night events scheduled for Thursday, September 22, 2016. Both events are free and open to all community members, high school students, and their families.  Free parking is offered on campus all day for these events.

The Transfer Day portion of the event will be held from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM, outside the Tamarack (Library) building on the main Columbia College campus, located at 11600 Columbia College Drive, Sonora. Transfer Day is targeted at current Columbia College students seeking information on transferring to a four-year college.

The College Night portion of the event will be held from 5:00 PM- 8:00 PM inside the Oak Pavilion on the main Columbia College campus. College Night is designed to assist high school students and their families, and community members, in making plans to pursue a higher education.

Representatives from University of California, California State Universities, Columbia College, as well as private and out-of-state four-year colleges and universities will be on hand to answer questions and provide information about their institution, including academic programs, admission procedures, transfers, financial aid, student life and more.  Students will be able to go from table to table, collect literature, and speak directly with representatives from each school.  Most representatives are from admissions offices, so students can hear firsthand what they need to do to meet admission requirements and obtain information on programs, tuition and scholarships.
