Carl Albert State College staff members answer questions, above, at one of the CASC College Fairs held at the Sallisaw and Poteau campuses on Monday. Several colleges and universities from the region also attended. Leroy Nolan, CASC Director of High School/College Relations, said the college fairs are a great chance for area students to learn more about higher education opportunities. He explained that with correct information in hand, students and their parents can compare colleges and make wise decisions. Jay Falkner, Associate Vice President for Enrollment Management said, "Our faculty and staff are here to give students individualized help from start to finish. For many of our students, they graduate from Carl Albert and then transfer to one of the colleges represented at our College Fair to continue their education."
Garry M. Ivey, CASC President, explained that transfer agreements with various universities are in existence, and others are being created and/or updated to ensure that CASC graduates have a smooth transition following CASC graduation. In addition, Ivey said that for many Carl Albert students, transfer scholarships may be available as students go from Carl Albert to a university system. Ivey concluded, "Whether just starting college or returning to college, we encourage students to experience life at Carl Albert College as an important step in their college education."
