First virtual transfer fair helps GRCC students plan where, how to continue their education

Oct. 16, 2020 GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Representatives from more than 25 four-year colleges and universities will be available to help students plan the next steps on their educational journeys through Grand Rapids Community College’s first virtual transfer fair.

The event is planned for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct. 21. A list of participating schools and links to sessions are available at

Participants include public and private schools from Michigan and beyond, and students are free to visit as many as they want during the four-hour session.

Representatives will be about to discuss transfer requirements, dates and deadlines and the available opportunities at their schools.
