RVCC TO HOLD OPEN HOUSE GEARED FOR ADULT STUDENTS
Adults looking to prepare for a new career during these difficult economic times or upgrade their job skills may consider enrolling in one of the more than 90 degree and certificate programs at Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC). To learn more, attend a special Adult Open House/Credit Fair on Wednesday, May 20, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. The event will be held in the 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.
