(RSCC) Adults thinking about returning to college or enrolling for the first time can get any questions they may have answered during three upcoming meetings at Roane State Community College.
Adult learner information sessions will be Thursday, June 15, and Wednesday, July 19, in the City Room of Roane State’s Coffey-McNally Building on the college’s Oak Ridge campus.
Another session on Thursday, July 13, will be in the Raider Room in the Dunbar Building on main campus in Harriman.
The meetings will open with a brief overview of Roane State and the programs the college offers, said Jim McDaniel, assistant director of student enrollment and recruitment. Topics ranging from admissions to financial aid will be discussed. Breakout sessions where attendees can meet one-on-one with Roane State representatives will follow.
The sessions are also an opportunity for adult learners to receive information about the new Tennessee Reconnect program, which goes into effect in the 2018-19 academic year, a press release said.
The Tennessee Reconnect Act, recently signed by Governor Bill Haslam, establishes a last-dollar scholarship for adults to attend a community college tuition-free, the press release said.
“Since the governor signed the act, people are calling,” McDaniel said. Roane State will be holding other information sessions during the academic year about adult learning opportunities, McDaniel said.
