WBC Transfer Day is Friday


Williams Baptist College will hold a preview day Friday, Oct. 15, for students interested in transferring from other institutions. WBC’s Transfer Day is provided to help prospective transfer students find out more about Williams.

"Transfer Day helps students from other institutions make a smooth transition to Williams. It gives us a chance to answer their questions and address their needs involving the transfer process," said Lisa Foley, transfer counselor in the Williams Office of Admissions.

As an additional incentive to attend, those taking part in Transfer Day and applying for admission to Williams on or before Oct. 15 will be eligible to receive a scholarship worth $200 per semester. The scholarship is in addition to other academic scholarships a student may qualify to receive.

The preview day will help transfer students to find out about financial aid opportunities and to hear from the registrar about the transfer process, according to Foley. A campus tour and meeting with academic advisors is also planned, as well as a lunch provided by WBC.

Foley noted that Williams has Summit Agreements with a number of junior colleges in the region to help streamline the transfer process and provide students with additional financial aid options.

Colleges which have Summit Agreements with WBC include: Arkansas Northeastern College, Arkansas State University-Newport, Black River Technical College, Crowley's Ridge College, East Arkansas Community College, Ozarka College and University of Arkansas Community College in Batesville.
