A new Transfer Center will be coming to the Lansing Community College downtown campus this summer.

The Transfer Center is expected to open July 1. It will be dedicated to helping students interested in transferring to a four-year university after completing their classes at LCC, according to Director of the University Center and Transfer Initiatives Patty Spagnuolo.

“My staff and I are really excited about our move to the Gannon Building,” Spagnuolo said. “Being closer to the students who need help understanding how transferring to a four-year institution works and what they need to do to prepare is extremely important. We will be working with colleges and universities to ensure students have a clear path to a bachelor’s degree.”

The Transfer Center will move into a temporary space in the Gannon Building, near the StarZone. Its permanent space will later be in the old Einstein Bros. Bagels location on the second floor of the Gannon Building.  

Spagnuolo said the idea of the Transfer Center is really about helping the students, and its approach is to provide individualized attention in a caring and comfortable setting.

“The Transfer Center will be a hub of activity,” Spagnuolo said. “We will host workshops and have a steady list of college and university representatives who will be on-site, or connecting virtually, to answer questions.”

LCC student Malikah Taylor said she is excited to hear about the new Transfer Center coming to LCC.
“I’ve been at LCC for a year and have recently been thinking about my next steps in my education,” Taylor said.

“I haven’t thought about what college I wanted to transfer to, but I do know I want to get on the path of working towards my bachelor’s, and I’m happy to hear the Transfer Center will provide the resources and support I need.”

Taylor said she is currently in General Studies and is looking to pursue a career in Forensic Science once she transfers.
