The Los Rios Community College District is featuring 50 universities in its second annual Virtual Transfer Week to help students learn how to successfully transfer to a four-year college.

The event will be hosted on Sept. 20-23 by university representatives covering topics such as the application processes, financial aid and different campus programs and scholarships, according to the Virtual Transfer Week webpage.

Paula Gonzalez, a student support specialist at City College’s Transfer Center, says that one of the biggest challenges the Transfer Center faces is creating awareness about the importance of transferring and the benefits the center has to offer students.

Students will have the opportunity to be involved in different workshops hosted each day, where they will receive detailed information regarding transferring.

Virtual Transfer Week was held last year for the first time, and it was a lot of collaboration and working together across the district’s four campuses to make it the best execution possible, she said.

“We found it was effective for students to collaborate in case they attended multiple of our Los Rios colleges, and for the recruiters as well,” she said. “Since there was no traveling involved, they were able to just do one session for the whole district and help as many students as they could in a virtual setting.” 

“We understand that some students weren’t always on campus on Thursdays during the time of Transfer Day,” Gonzalez said, referring to an on-campus event held annually prior to the pandemic. “So now, in a virtual setting, they’re able to attend different sessions, different times.” 

Each day of the four-day events will feature a different university system, with Monday focused on Sacramento State, Tuesday on private universities, Wednesday on University of California colleges and Thursday on California State University campuses. Students are encouraged to RSVP to the sessions they plan to attend. The virtual events won’t be recorded, but more virtual fairs will be planned for October, according to the webpage.

“Our goal in the Transfer Center is really to increase our minority students who are getting access to these resources to make sure that we ensure that transfer support, and getting them on their way to the four-year university, whether it’s out of state, in state, UC, CSU, HBCUs — just really bringing awareness to what transfers, and that it’s available to them to do so,” Gonzalez said.

Gonzalez knows firsthand the value of access to information about transferring. “I can say from my personal experience being a transfer student [that] one of the biggest struggles and challenges that I’ve had was not knowing early on what transfer was, so that extended my stay at community college,” Gonzalez said. “[It] took me longer than I wish I would have had, because of the resources that I didn’t know were available to me.”
