Tyler Junior College

Free Returning Adult Workshop set Oct. 29

Published Monday, 22nd October 2012

Information about starting college for the first time – or returning after a long absence – will be provided by Tyler Junior College during a free Returning Adult Workshop.

The workshop will be held 8:30 a.m.-noon Monday, Oct. 29, in Apache Rooms 1 and 2 of Rogers Student Center, located at the corner of Baxter Avenue and Lake Street.

TJC Adult Student Workshops are open to anyone 21 years or older who is interested in returning to college. They are designed for those individuals with a high school diploma or General Educational Development (GED), who may be the first in their family to attend college, and who may lack financial resources for tuition, fees, books and childcare while attending college. This might include single parents, displaced homemakers, recently laid-off workers or other adults who need retraining for a new career.

The college admissions process, registration procedures, testing requirements, financial aid and other services available to students will be discussed, as will promising career fields for future students.

Workshop speakers will include representatives from the offices of admissions, testing, financial aid, support services and distance learning, as well as the counselors from each TJC academic school.

Reservations are recommended. To register, call the TJC Support Services office at 903-510-2391.
