Career Exploration: Not sure what college major to pursue? Have you forgotten what you really wanted out of life as you focused on earning an income, caring for loved ones, or handling life’s many ups and downs? Pursuing an education is one of the biggest, and sometimes scariest, decisions you can make. Completing a Career Exploration Workshop is a great step to make sure you are on the right path toward building a career around your skills and passions. Workshops are offered weekly and are free of charge.

Financial Aid: Do you have questions about how to pay for college? Need help applying for financial aid? Have questions about using military benefits? Not sure where to start? No problem! Attend one of our Financial Aid Workshops to get the information and help you need. No need to register.
