Adult learners invited to Waubonsee's specialized info sessions on Dec. 13 and Jan. 4

Are you considering attending college to finish a degree, start a new one, or upskill to improve your job prospects as an adult learner?

Waubonsee Community College is hosting two information sessions tailored exclusively to adult learners.

The first session will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 13, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the Academic and Professional Center at the Sugar Grove campus, off Route 47.

The second session will be held virtually via Zoom on Thursday, Jan. 4, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Both sessions are free and open to the public.

These informative sessions will address adult learners' questions about reaching their education and career goals.

Waubonsee provides courses, degrees, and/or certificate programs across 70 disciplines, with the option to focus on transferring to a four-year college or getting into the workforce quickly.

These sessions will also provide resources to help adult learners learn how to pay for college.

Waubonsee offers affordable tuition and flexible interest-free payment plans. Its MyChoice program offers learners a flexible approach in choosing how, when, and where they take classes with face-to-face, online, hybrid, sync online, and flex classes.
