Newman University hosts dinner, information sessions for new transfer students Feb. 12

Students who are considering transferring to Newman University are invited to a free dinner where they can gather more information about the university and meet with advisors, faculty and other Newman officials. The event, Transfer Night, will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. on Feb. 12, 2013 in the Tarcisia Roths, ASC Alumni Center, located on the second floor of the Dugan Library on the Newman University campus.

During the event, students can meet with an advisor to learn more about the admissions process and other topics, and speak with faculty members to learn more about specific academic programs. Participants will also receive tips on becoming a successful student at Newman.

Transfer students can also discuss financial aid and scholarships with university officials. Newman offers several scholarships and grants for transfer students, including a $1,500 scholarship (over two years) for students who have completed a two-year degree from a community college located in Kansas, Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Missouri, or Colorado. Newman also has agreements with many area two-year colleges that ensure the acceptance of credit hours transferred to Newman and that help smooth students' transition to the university's four-year programs.

The event is free but participants must register for the event at www.newmanu.edu/transfernight.
