BC students get encouragement for further education

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - It's a two-year school, so students have to make up their minds where they want to go after graduating from Bakersfield College and they got some encouragement to take that next step.     
 
Admission representatives from more than 25 historically black colleges and universities were on campus Monday to discuss transfer opportunities as part of an agreement between the HBCU and California Community Colleges signed in 2015.
 
Students who want to transfer to one of those four-year universities can take advantage of several benefits offered by the HBCU caravan, including guaranteed admission to participating institutions, waived application fees, and scholarship information.  "We're excited to share this with our students because it gives them added options for transfer and not transfer in state, transfer out of state to the east coast to these wonderful, over 100-year-old colleges and universities, not only offering an undergraduate degree program but also offering graduate opportunities, said Marisa Marquez. 
 
This agreement also offers students priority consideration for housing, makes them eligible for transfer scholarships, and to receive preadmission advisement.
