TAAC Hailey King Memorial Scholarship
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.
