International Student FairSkyline College played host to over 30 colleges and universities at the International Student Transfer Fair held on Wednesday, April 10, 2019, in the Fireside Dining Room. There were representatives from both in-state and out-of-state schools, with some coming from as far north as Victoria, British Columbia, as far east as New York State and as far south as Florida.

Students were excited to learn that many of these schools not only had Transfer Guarantee Agreements (TAG) with Skyline College, but also had scholarships for international students. The fair lasted for about two hours, giving students ample time to talk with any of the schools that they were interested in.

To encourage students to participate in the fair, many schools provided the International Student Program (ISP) with swag that were given away to students who demonstrated that they had successfully participated in the fair. The swag ranged from the usual, pens and lanyards, to the unique, Easter baskets and tubes of lip balm. The Easter baskets were by far the most popular, of course!

Students who were unable to participate in the fair are welcome to come by the ISP office (Building 4, Room 4-258) for more information on the institutions that were at the fair.
