YOUR GUIDE TO

TRANSFER

HIGHER EDUCATION BEGINS HERE


WHY

Transfer?

“I never really fully experienced art until the Paducah School of Art and Design at WKCTC. I experienced ceramics, sculpture and painting with oils for the first time. PSAD has changed me. I feel like a flower that is opening up.”

IT’S WORTH IT

MORE $$ THAN AN ASSOCIATE DEGREE Today’s job market requires workers to have more education and skills than ever before. Plus, a bachelor’s degree holder earns around $271 more per week than someone with an associate’s degree - that’s a new car every other year!

Jill Westerfield

WKCTC GRADUATE WHO TRANSFERRED TO SIU-CARBONDALE

IT’S THE SMART CHOICE

You can go two years for the price of one. West Kentucky Community & Technical College (WKCTC) offers many courses toward a bachelor’s degree and lower tuition rates, so you can save money by earning your associate degree at WKCTC before you transfer.

IT’S FASTER

Research shows that students who complete their associate degree before transferring are more likely to earn their bachelor’s degree in less time.

IT’S EASIER

Kentucky has statewide policies to help your general education courses transfer and make it easier to transfer after you complete an associate degree.

IT’S BETTER

WKCTC transfer students are very successful and perform at either the same or higher academic level after transferring to a four-year institution than students who start at a university.
