Belmont College Offers Transition to College Course for Adults
St. Clairsville, OH (April 19, 2013) – Belmont College will be offering a transition to college course for adults who want to earn a college degree but are apprehensive about how and where to begin.
There is no cost for the five-week summer course, which will run from June 17 through July 17 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The course will be held at the Main Campus location in St. Clairsville.
Course topics will include:
- Career exploration
- Understanding the financial aid process
- Learning basic computer skills
- Refreshing writing and math skills
- Completing a first year academic plan and college application
The Transition to College course is a result of the Plus 50 grant program that Belmont College recently received. This grant, awarded by the American Association of Community Colleges recently launched a nationwide initiative to train 10,000 baby boomers for helping professions in health care, education and social services. The Plus 50 program is intended to serve adults who attended college but never received a degree, have a high school diploma or a GED but have little, if any, college credit or those who need a new skill for a changing job market.
Through the Plus 50 Program, Belmont College is providing programs and services, such as the Transition to College course, that make it easier than ever for students over 50 to obtain the cutting-edge skills and credentials required to compete for jobs in the health care, education, and social services fields.
