Retrain and Return workshops offered

Published Friday, 7th September 2012

Tyler Junior College will offer two special workshops on Tuesday, Sept. 11, to provide information for workers displaced from jobs at Carrier, Trane and other area manufacturing companies.

The Retrain and Return Workshops will combine information about attending or returning to college after time away from school, as well as information about the opportunities available for federal financial aid.

Two sessions are available: 1-3:30 p.m. or 5-6:30 p.m., in the Board Room of White Administrative Services Center at the corner of Fifth Street and Baxter Avenue on the TJC main campus.

There is no charge and no need to RSVP.

Discussion topics include: college admissions, registration and financial aid procedures; testing requirements; TJC Careers Services offerings; the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) process; and the Special Conditions process for displaced employees.

Displaced workers who are eligible to benefit from federal retraining funds may also be eligible for financial aid to help with expenses.

For more information, please contact Michele Knox at mkno@tjc.edu or call 903-510-2667 or Ann Holley at ahol@tjc.edu or 903-510-2391.
