Belfast Adult & Community Education offers a transition to college program

Belfast -

BELFAST – Belfast Adult & Community Education offers a free transition-to-college program to anyone with a high school diploma or GED. It is designed for the non-traditional student to help improve academic skills, build self-confidence, and learn what is necessary to succeed in college.
Mainers who have a college education earn more than those who have a high school diploma: on average, 39% more with an associate’s degree (2 years), and 63% more with a bachelor’s degree (4 years).
The 15-week semester is designed to prepare students for college. The schedule is convenient for the non-traditional student’s busy life. Classes meet weekly in a college setting. The program provides assistance with all aspects of the college enrollment process, including academic skill building, financial aid and college application paperwork, counseling, and more.
The program begins on Monday, September 13. Call 338-3197 for more information.
Pre-registration is required.
