CTN TRANSFER MOTIVATIONAL CONFERENCE
The Catch the Next Ascender Transfer Motivational Conference is designed to introduce community college students to experience university life and to motivate them to transfer to a four-year University. Only fifteen percent of Latinos in the US have a Bachelor’s degree and four percent have an advanced degree. When looking at African Americans, only twenty-two percent have a Bachelor’s degree and six percent have an advanced degree. For these figures to improve, transferring to a four-year University is crucial to the Latino and African American communities. The same urgency applies to other first generation underserved students in Texas. Participating in the summer conference will offer a unique opportunity for our Catch the Next Ascender students to have an on-campus dormitory experience at Texas’s flagship university.
The main objectives of this conference are to bring together Catch the Next- Ascender students in a collaborative environment to gain insight from university representatives on topics such as:
- Learn about the University Admissions processes
- Learn about the University Financial Aid processes
- Learn about the transferring of credits from community college to a university
- Learn about housing options
- Learn about career planning and time management skills required to transfer to a four year university
