High school students interested in earning free college credits and preparing for their future after graduation should plan to attend Tri-County Community College’s fourth-annual What’s Next Open House on March 15 at the main campus in Peachtree from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for students and their families to see what Tri-County Community College is all about,” said Samantha Jones, coordinator of recruitment and retention at Tri-County Community College. “Each year, we hold this event to showcase what we can offer them, both while they are still in high school and post-graduation.”
Area freshman, sophomores, juniors, and seniors will gain the opportunity to learn first hand what programs of study are offered by Tri-County Community College. The event also allows students and parents to learn more about the Career and College Promise Program at Tri-County Community College.
“The Career and College Promise Program offers opportunities for qualified local high school juniors and seniors to enroll in community college courses, tuition free,” Jones said. “These classes can help students prepare to enter a university setting or get a technical credential while they finish high school so they are ready to enter the workforce after graduation.”
Parents will have a chance to tour the campus, attend breakout sessions, speak to faculty and staff, and discover what resources are available to them at TCCC.
“We really want to give parents a chance to ask any questions they may have about all the aspects of the college experience,” Jones said.
For more information, or to register for the event, please contact Jones at 835-4203, or log onto www.tricountycc.edu.
