RVCC TO HOLD ADULT OPEN HOUSE
Individuals who have attended some college or gained knowledge through life experiences can find themselves on the fast track toward earning a degree or certificate at Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC).
To learn more, attend a special Adult Open House/Credit Fair on Wednesday, June 4, at 6 p.m. The event will be held in The RVCC Conference Center at the College?s North Branch Campus.
During the event, RVCC?s specially trained advisors will discuss the process of transferring old credits earned from other colleges and universities, as well making a successful transition back to college. Interested students can also learn how they may earn up to 45 credits for what they already know. Information will be available about CLEP exams to earn credits and other lifetime learning options, as well as financial aid.
Participants can also learn about the College for Working Adults, a unique program for working adults who are interested in pursing a college degree. The program enables adults to work full-time and earn an associate degree in just two-and-a-half years. Courses are conveniently offered on Friday evenings and Saturday mornings and include classroom instruction and online studies.
