Lewiston Adult Education is now accepting applications for the Summer 2013 College Transitions Program. This program is designed for individuals looking to increase their earning potential by earning a two or four year degree. Any GED/High School Diploma-holding resident of Androscoggin County accepted to the program may enroll at no cost.
Designed to help students prepare for, get accepted to, and be successful in college, the College Transitions Program provides a comprehensive review of reading, writing, and math in a setting which simulates an actual college environment. Students who have been away from the classroom benefit from working in a college-style setting before enrolling in college. This transitional step saves students much of the time and energy that is typically spent adjusting to a new environment, and allows them to better focus on their studies.
Each semester, the course is specifically formatted to meet the current students' needs. By the end of the course, students will have developed the study habits and time management skills that will work best with their individual learning styles.
Other obstacles unrelated to academics, such as the college application process, financial aid issues, and any logistical challenges unique to the student, will also be addressed in the College Transition Program.
Three sections of the College Transition Program are available: 1) Tuesdays and Thursdays 9:00 am-Noon; 2) Tuesdays and Thursdays 6:00-9:00 pm; or 3) Wednesdays 9:00 am-3:00 pm. College Transition Program classes will begin May 21st and meet at the B-Street Community Center.
Applications are currently being accepted. Interested candidates must contact Elayne Bean at 795-4141 to schedule an advising appointment prior to registration.
