MOREHEAD – Morehead State University’s Transfer Center in the Office of Enrollment Services hosted nearly 30 faculty and staff from the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) Wednesday, Sept. 2, for the annual MSU/KCTCS Counselor Workshop.
During the all-day workshop, presenters from various MSU academic departments spoke to the group regarding course equivalencies, program curriculums, and best practices in the advisement of transfer students.
The workshop initiative began in 2011 as a way of informing KCTCS counselors about new programs and curriculum changes at MSU. Since then, it has evolved into a collaborative effort to share information and seek best practices in services to transfer students.
“Transfer students make up roughly 1/3 of our total student population so it’s vital that they have access to the best information and resources available to make a seamless transition to MSU. By hosting this event each year, we’re able to enhance our partnerships and help ensure those students are successful,” said Jen Timmermann, who oversees MSU’s Transfer Center.
KCTCS schools represented at the workshop were Ashland CTC, Big Sandy CTC, Bluegrass CTC, Elizabethtown CTC, Hazard CTC, Maysville CTC, Somerset CC, and Southeast KY CTC.
