NW-SCC offers University Transfer Panel Discussion

Northwest-Shoals Community College Student Support Services will hold its third annual University Transfer Portal Discussion for students Thursday.

The panel discussion will be held from 9-11 a.m. in the student center, Building 305, on the Phil Campbell campus and from 1-4 p.m. in the seminar room on the Shoals campus.

The transfer panel discussion will give students the opportunity to speak with representatives from nine different universities about what college life will look like in a university setting.

Universities represented at the panel discussion will be Athens State University, Huntingdon College, Mississippi State University, Troy University, University of Alabama, University of Alabama at Birmingham, University of Alabama at Huntsville, University of North Alabama and University of West Alabama.

“This is a great opportunity to show our students what college will be like on different university campuses,” said NW-SCC Student Support Services manager Brittany Jones. “Our students are preparing for a major step in their lives as they transition from the community college to the university environment. As they hear from universities of all different sizes, we feel it will help them be better prepared and be more successful.”
