Counselors from financial aid, enrollment, records, athletics and each academic division will be on hand Wednesday, March 12 at 6.p.m. to provide information on how to successfully transition from Victory University to an institution of their choice.
The campus of The LeMoyne-Owen College, 807 Walker Ave., will be the venue Wednesday (March 12th) for the Tips to Transitioning session, with faculty and staff set to deliver critical information on how to make a smooth transfer from Victory University.
Citing a financial problem, Victory University last week announced that it would close its doors when the spring semester is over. It reportedly has about 1,600 students.
The Tips to Transitioning session will begin at 6 p.m. It will include a discussion of what documents, such as transcripts and financial records, that students need and how to get them. Financial aid consultants will discuss applicable federal regulations and the steps students must take to transfer financial aid allocations and awards. Representatives from athletics inform student athletes of NCAA regulations about player eligibility.
Faculty from each academic area will review students' unofficial transcripts and advise them of the best way to chart their academic course to minimize or eliminate any delays toward graduation. Representatives from Enrollment Management and Admissions will help students enroll at LOC and answer any questions on how to apply for scholarships.
Students are advised to bring copies of their unofficial transcripts and financial aid award information to the Alma C. Hanson Student Center where the session will be held. For those who want to enroll, shot records, ACT scores (if under 21 years old), and high school transcripts for those students who have earned less than 35 college credit hours are needed to complete the application process.
