About TAAC: The Transfer Admissions and Advising Committee is an organization of transfer coordinators, advisors and transfer admissions counselors from several of the Philadelphia region’s institutions of higher education. We look to find ways to work together in an effort to better support student and institutional transfer needs and encourage transfer personnel to communicate with each other to help share experiences and successes.
About the Hailey King Memorial Scholarship: TAAC endeavors to support the transfer of Community College graduates that intend to continue their studies at four-year colleges and universities. With that in mind, TAAC would like to provide financial assistance to students who exhibit exemplary scholastic records and civic achievements with the hope that their transfer experience may be made easier with the scholarship funds. The winners of the TAAC Scholarship will be provided with a $500 scholarship towards completion of a bachelor’s degree.
