Troy University to host Global Open House on April 16

Posted: Monday, 01 April 2013

TROY - Troy University will host a Global Open House and Career Chat on Tuesday, April 16 to assist prospective students in the areas of academic strategy for career development, financial assistance and admissions and credit transfers.

Events will be held at the University’s four Alabama campuses and 22 of its Global Campus locations, as well as online. Those wishing to participate can register by location online at Registration deadline for the events is April 12. Times vary by location.

Application fees will be waived for those who apply for admission to TROY during a Global Open House event at a location or online on April 16.

The University will host two virtual open house sessions that day – one at noon and the other at 8 p.m., according to Buddy Starling, Dean of Enrollment Management.

“Participants in the virtual open house will get an overview of Troy University and our Call Center will conduct live chats with those who have questions or seek specific information,” Starling said.

Starling said the Global Open House concept fits well with the University’s geographic structure.

“Troy University is uniquely positioned through our geographic structure for substantial outreach,” Starling said. “It made sense to have these events on the same day to share information about the opportunities available through TROY while maintaining some local uniqueness for each site.”
