According to NWSCC Student Support Services Director, Beth Brewer, SSS would traditionally host an in-person transfer panel to provide students with valuable insights on what college life will be like at a university setting. However, the program is having to handle events slightly different due to COVID-19.

Virtual University Transfer Day provides current NWSCC students with an opportunity to view customized videos from nine universities. Universities participating include:

  • Athens State University
  • Auburn University
  • Baptist Health Sciences University
  • University of Alabama
  • University of Alabama at Birmingham
  • University of Alabama in Huntsville
  • University of North Alabama
  • University of South Alabama
  • University of West Alabama

“This is a great opportunity to show our students what life is like on different university campuses,” said Brewer. “Many of our students are having to prepare for a big transition to universities at a very difficult time. We want our students to be successful, and we feel like offering them resources such as Virtual University Transfer Day will help.”
