Planning for Transfer and Career
It is never too early to plan, and your student success coach will be right by your side during your journey. Your student success coach will help you plan out your education journey and your life after LLCC — whether that is transferring, improving a skill set or entering the workforce. Our students have gone on to be actors, laborers, teachers, doctors, politicians, entrepreneurs, nurses, chefs and more! Your student success coach can explain the transfer process if that is your goal. They can coach you as to what steps to take and when to make them to start this process. Students planning to transfer to another school after LLCC should start researching schools of interest within their first semester at LLCC. Talk to your student success coach about the intended school(s) and how to contact a support staff member at that school to discuss the transfer. Student success coaches also encourage and teach students to use transfer tools such as transferology or itransfer.

Spring semester Transfer Tuesdays
The LLCC Office of Student Success will be hosting virtual sessions, “Transfer Tuesdays,” for current students looking to transfer after graduation to a four-year college or university to complete a bachelor’s degree. They can meet with representatives from four-year institutions and gather information to help them choose a school. Transfer Tuesdays will be hosted by an LLCC staff member on Tuesday afternoons from Jan. 26-May 4, 1-2:30 p.m. on Zoom. At each session, one or more four-year institutions will be represented. There will be general announcements at the start of each session and virtual break-out rooms to meet with college representatives, who will be able to show videos/pictures, share documents and talk with students. Participating students will be able to go to as many of the college sessions that they choose.
We encourage students to attend these Transfer Tuesdays sessions. For more information, please contact your student success coach.
