Join RaiseMe’s Virtual Transfer Fairs, 5/27 – 5/29

During RaiseMe’s Virtual Transfer Fair, community college students can earn micro-scholarships for visiting with colleges, right from home.

Students: we know it has become more challenging for you to visit with colleges that you might want to transfer to. Take it from us — four-year colleges really want to connect with you and help you to understand what your options are.

That’s why RaiseMe has joined forces with our college partners to offer you a three-day Virtual College Fair so that you can get interact directly with four-year colleges and continue on your path to transfer. The best part? You can log your attendance in your RaiseMe portfolio and earn micro-scholarships for attending a college fair, without even having to leave the house.

Admissions professionals will be on hand to answer questions about programs, deadlines, application, tuition, and more.

Here is how it works:

  1. Sign up for sessions using the links below.
  2. Attend our 30 minute fair each day and meet multiple colleges, round robin style.
  3. Pick the ones that catch your eye, and immediately jump right into virtual breakout sessions hosted by each college (we will share the links during our session!). Connect directly, ask questions, and learn what your next enrollment steps might be.
  4. Log your participation in your RaiseMe account, and earn scholarships for your attendance!
