First of four events on Oct. 13
MOREHEAD, Ky. (Oct. 2, 2015) — Morehead State University’s Transition Center in the Office of Enrollment Services has announced four “Adults, Transfers and Veterans Back to School” events for prospective adult, transfer and veteran students interested in achieving the dream of a college education.
Representatives will be present from key academic departments, financial aid, and enrollment and veterans services. Application fees will be waived for students attending these events.
“We are pleased to provide this opportunity to help adults and veterans start college or return to college if those plans were interrupted in the past,” said Jill McBride, adult learner coordinator/ project graduate and student veteran liaison. “As a former adult student myself, I understand how difficult it can be to juggle all aspects of one’s life from college, to family, to work. But let me tell you that it is well worth the effort.”
The dates, times, and locations of the programs are:
- Oct.13, MSU at Mt. Sterling, Clay Community Center, 4-7 p.m.
- Oct. 15, Fannin Automotive of Ashland, (7405 U.S. Route 60, Ashland) 4-8 p.m.
- Oct. 20, Prestonsburg, Mountain Arts Center, 4-8 p.m.
- Oct. 21, Hazard Community and Technical College, 1-4 p.m.
“All of us at some point in our lives have said or will say, ‘I could have done that, or been that or accomplished that,’” McBride said. “I am here to say that it is never too late to be who you might have been, and attending one of MSU’s Adults and Veterans Back to School events is the first step toward fulfilling your dream of a college degree.”
MSU also offers courses at three regional campuses (Ashland, Mt. Sterling and Prestonsburg) at other locations in East Kentucky, such as the University Center of the Mountains in Hazard, and via the Internet, providing busy adults and veterans the opportunity to complete class work at a time and place convenient to them.
Registration is not necessary and students bringing all official transcripts and test scores, if applicable, may be admitted provided they meet MSU admission requirements.
