TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Tallahassee Community College students and FAMU faculty collaborated Wednesday for TCC2FAMU Day at the TCC Student Union.

The program helps TCC students prepare to earn their Associate's degree and transfer to Florida A&M. So far, more than 600 students are enrolled in the TCC2FAMU transfer program.

"To make things easier for them, we try to put things in place for guidance to put them on the right track so that they get into their intended major," said Katie Sanchez, the transfer program specialist at TCC.

FAMU academic advisers and instructors answered student questions about their programs. They covered everything from engineering, education, health sciences and journalism, among other programs.

Michelle Ferrier, dean of the FAMU School of Journalism and Graphic Communication, gave a presentation about the university.

"Our goal is to really forge pathways to collaborating, whether it's in face-to-face events like this or online to help expose students to the opportunities available by completing their four year degree at Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University," said Ferrier.

TCC2FAMU day ran through Wednesday afternoon.

The next TCC2FAMU day will be during the fall semester of 2019.
