Upcoming Transfer Fairs Help Students Make Decisions About the Next Step in Their Education

News Release, College of Southern Maryland

La Plata, MD- The College of Southern Maryland (CSM) will host three transfer fairs in February — Feb. 24 at the La Plata Campus; Feb. 25 at the Leonardtown Campus and Feb. 25 at the Prince Frederick Campus. These events are a valuable opportunity for CSM students to meet representatives from a variety of colleges and universities, explore college majors, degree programs and meet with CSM faculty to gather information about planning the next step in their education.

CSM graduates who meet certain criteria are now given priority enrollment or guaranteed admission into 49 colleges and universities for 102 different degree programs nationwide – and internationally. On hand to meet with students will be 53 representatives from four-year colleges and universities at the La Plata Campus Transfer Fair; 40 of those representatives at the Leonardtown Campus Transfer Fair; and 40 will also attend the Prince Frederick Campus Transfer Fair.

“It has been gratifying to work with all of the four-year colleges and universities who are eager to welcome CSM students to their campuses,” said CSM Coordinator of Transfer and Articulation Jacqui Rogers.  

“Our programs have a great reputation,” Rogers added. “And we work very closely with our faculty and with faculty at the transfer institution to make sure that our paths map out the transfer credits, classes and electives very clearly. If our students’ credits won’t transfer, we don’t pursue the agreement.”

It was also clear to Rogers that when approached, four-year institutions were eager to work out an agreement. “Universities want our students,” she shared.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
