Please feel free to share this with a colleague or Irving graduate who might also be interested in registering for these events. 

    At our two first-ever events on May 18, 2022, and July 28, 2022, multiple departments as well as Irving's newest partners in higher education came on-site to support those Irving graduates, family members, and current staff interested in furthering their career journey through higher education. Each college (listed below) had several career counselors and advisors available to assist one-on-one by answering questions about transcripts, transferring credits, and programming information.
