VANCOUVER, Wash. – In an effort to better serve its community and broaden the availability of education, Clark College is hosting variety of free information sessions to help those interested in pursuing their educations at Clark during the upcoming 2017 winter quarter, which begins in January.
In addition to its free Financial Aid Information Night on Dec. 7, Clark College is offering three different types of sessions:
- General Information Sessions are designed to answer questions people may have about enrolling at Clark. Topics include budgeting, career exploration, financial aid, and the application process. The next General Information Session is scheduled for December 1; for a complete list of upcoming sessions, visit clark.edu/future/infosessions.
- English as a Second Language Information Sessions help non-native speakers interested in improving their English language skills. Clark’s Transitional Studies department offers low-cost classes designed for adult immigrants and refugees. The next ESL information session is scheduled for November 28; for a complete list, visit clark.edu/cc/esl. Bring a photo ID; friends and family are welcome to attend.
- Enrollment Labs are a new service Clark is offering to help students who have applied to Clark but need assistance completing the registration process. New students are able to register for classes, apply for financial aid, get technology support, and receive one-on-one assistance with other issues—all in one convenient morning or afternoon session. The labs are offered Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning November 29; for a complete list, visit clark.edu/future/enrollment-labs.php.
“We know that choosing to pursue an education is an important decision that can feel daunting for many people,” said Vice President of Student Affairs Bill Belden. “Clark College is committed to serving our community and making higher education accessible to all, so these outreach efforts are just an extension of our ongoing mission.”
