MJC Schedules Transfer Day And College Night

High school and college students will have a chance to pick up information and ask questions of representatives from over 60 four-year colleges and universities at Modesto Junior College’s Transfer Day and College Night scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 28. The event is held outside between the Center for Advanced Technologies (CAT) and Student Services Building on East Campus, 435 College Ave., Modesto.

Both events are free and open to college students, and high school students and their parents. Parking is offered for free on Aug. 28 for this event, but only in the following parking areas: lot 102 next to the Agriculture complex; North Campus Way; South Campus Way and lot 103 next to the CAT building.

Transfer Day is held 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is targeted at MJC students seeking information on transferring to a four-year college. College Night, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., assists high school students in making plans to pursue a higher education.

Representatives from University of California and California State Universities, 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 college. Most representatives are from admissions offices, so students can hear firsthand what they need to do to meet admission requirements and can obtain information on programs, tuition and scholarships.
