JOHNSON CITY – Adults who would like to know more about starting or returning to college are invited to attend an Adult Student Information Session at East Tennessee State University on Thursday, Jan. 24, from 5-7 p.m. in the Alumni House at 908 W. Maple Street on the ETSU campus.
This drop-in session, sponsored by the ETSU Center for Adult, Commuter and Transfer Services (ACTS), will give participants an opportunity to learn about the college admissions process, financial aid, scholarships, degree programs and student involvement and engagement. Refreshments will be provided.
“Getting my degree allowed me to complete something that I started 35 years ago,” said ETSU alumna and campus IRB (Institutional Review Board) coordinator Linda Zerby. “I take pride in being able to call myself a college graduate, and I now have the confidence to go for my master’s degree. It’s never too late.”
“Adults return to school to pursue better job options while taking pride in earning their degree. Completing a degree and making use of credits earned in the past is an accomplishment that many adults seek to achieve,” added Dr. Carla Warner, director of Adult, Commuter and Transfer Services. “The ACTS Office assists prospective students on the journey to return to school to make a better life for themselves.”
For more information, contact the ACTS office at 423-439-5641 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For disability accommodations, call the ETSU Office of Disability Services at 423-439-8346.
