GREENCASTLE -- Ivy Tech Community College is gearing up for its annual College Transfer Fair on Oct. 14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 915 S. Zinc Mill Road in Greencastle.
The College Transfer Fair was established to advise students on how their educational experience at Ivy Tech Community College can easily be continued to a four-year degree program.
Because Ivy Tech offers 74 different courses that transfer to all Indiana colleges and universities, and has more than 200 degree transfer agreements with four-year colleges, advancing majors or career paths is now a more seamless process.

Colleges represented include: Indiana State University, Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, Indiana Wesleyan University, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), Manchester College, Trine University, Indiana University and Harrison College.
Representatives from each institution will be on hand to provide information on admissions, financial aid and online courses.
The College Transfer Fair is open to students, alumni and the community. High school students and parents are also encouraged to attend.
