Workshop Focuses On Needs Of Non-Traditional Students

April 8, 2010 – A college education truly is for everyone – even for those that think higher education has passed them by.

Collin College’s Destination College department is partnering with the advising and financial aid offices for a new program specifically for those thinking about returning to college or those who missed going to college after high school and want to get that degree after years of putting it off.

“Never Too Late: College for Non-Traditional Students” is a free workshop for non-traditional students (individuals not of the typical 18-21 year old age group) seeking to re-enter or attend college for the first time.

The workshop is open to the public and is set from 6:30-8 p.m., Thursday, April 22, at the Preston Ridge Campus Event Center, 9700 Wade Blvd., Frisco.

Speak with Collin College financial aid, advising and Destination College officials about returning to a college or university. Attendees are not required to enroll at Collin College.

Destination College is a Collin College initiative that helps the citizens of Collin County to get ready for college, no matter which institution they choose.

Registration is required.
