Belmont College Offers Plus 50 Program
St. Clairsville, OH (March 7, 2014) – Working through the American
Association of Community College’s Plus 50 program, Belmont College will be offering
a Transition to College course for adults age 50 and over who want to earn a college
degree but are apprehensive about how and where to begin.
The five-week course will run from April 1 through May 1 on Tuesdays and Thursdays
from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The course will be held at the Main Campus location
in St. Clairsville. Students must be 50 years of age or older to enroll and there
is no cost to attend.
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 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 skills and credentials required to compete for jobs in the
health care, education, and social services fields.
To learn more about the Transition to College course or to register, contact Courtney
Nign, Enrollment Services Associate, at 740.699.3894.
