FROM COMMUNITY COLLEGES TO A 4-YEAR DEGREE, A PATH WITH MANY BENEFITS

Learn about the immediate and long-term benefits of a community-college education, and how this path can provide a better opportunity to be accepted to a higher-ranked college/university from which the student will receive their diploma. Hear from 3 excellent U.S. community colleges and the transfer officials from some of the 4-year universities they each provide a pathway to. Students who attended community college before transferring to a 4-year college will talk about their experiences. A Q&A will provide the opportunity to ask questions of the community colleges, transfer officials, and students. Based upon interest, a virtual fair with the opportunity to personally meet with various community colleges will be offered as a follow-up. Brought to you by the United States Heartland China Association, which fosters and supports a positive, productive, and mutually beneficial relationship between the United States and China by promoting exchanges in culture, education, and business.
