Georgian College is offering help for mature students interested in wanting to go back to college.
Whether it’s full-time or part-time, Get Help To Go Back offers the opportunity to connect with college admissions and recruitment staff. Mature students taking part will get to speak to a career consultant, take a campus tour, get one-on-one support with both full- and part-time program research, get help with college applications and more.
Those who apply in person at the event will also have their Ontario College Application Service (OCAS) application fees covered by Georgian College.
“We’ve had a great response to Get Help To Go Back events – especially for those who have been out of school for a while,” said Kailey Hawkins, Interim Manager of Student Recruitment at Georgian. “If you’re thinking of training for a new career but aren’t sure where to start, our knowledgeable and friendly staff from our student recruitment team, part-time studies and academic upgrading are here to help with ideas and provide information about how to take the next step. We can make the process easier for mature learners.”
Get Help To Go Back will take place at seven campus locations in Barrie, Orillia, Midland, Muskoka (Bracebridge), Owen Sound, Orangeville and South Georgian Bay (Collingwood) on Aug. 20, from 5 to 7 p.m. Those interested in participating can RSVP online at www.georgiancollege.ca/GetHelpToGoBack.
Parking is free and participants are welcome to bring family and friends.
