100 students in attendance at ACTC Transfer Program Fair

Published on Apr 18, 2024

Ashland Community and Technical College hosted their annual spring Transfer Program Fair on the College Drive Campus from March 25-28. 

The four-day long event gives students the chance to connect with university representatives to learn about their colleges and explore opportunities to further their education beyond their time at ACTC.

The theme for the fair this year was “Becoming an Innovator.”

With over 30 colleges/universities in attendance, the 100 students that passed through the fair had many great options to consider. Several colleges also hosted more intensive presentations on programs offered each day that provided students the option to attend in person or remotely. 

Topics covered in the college’s presentations included aquaculture, aviation, criminal justice, distillery certification, education, environmental science, equine business, funeral directing, HR, manufacturing engineering, marketing, nursing, pharmacy, pre-law, psychology, scholarships, shadowing and internships, social work programs, space science, business, and more.

“Witnessing students explore diverse academic opportunities and engage with representatives from our transfer partners has been inspiring to watch,” Megan Horne, ACTC Director of Student Support Services, commented. “The transfer fair has not only provided valuable resources for their future educational endeavors but has also encouraged them to pursue their dreams with confidence. We look forward to witnessing the continued success and growth it brings to our students.”

Colleges/Universities in attendance include: 

Bellevue University, Campbellsville, Chamberlain & Walden Universities, Eastern Kentucky University, Franklin University, Indiana Tech, Kentucky Christian University, Kentucky State University (KYSU), KYSU School of Nursing, Marshall – College of Pharmacy, Mid-America College of Funeral Service, Midway University, Morehead State University, Morehead State University – Social Work, MSU – Education, MSU-CEOC, NKU Online, Northeast AHEC, Northern Kentucky University, Ohio University, Shawnee State, Simmons College, Southern New Hampshire University, Sullivan, University of Charleston School of Pharmacy, University of Kentucky, University of Pikeville (UPIKE), and University of Rio Grande.

We extend our appreciation to all of our transfer partners who participated, and a special thank you to ACTC Student Support Services staff and other volunteers who helped make this event possible.
