Thursday, February 19, 2015

Looking to earn a college degree, transition to a new career or gain a professional certification to enhance your career options?  Then, why not attend the County College of Morris Open House for Adults on Thursday, March 5, and explore the wide range of academic and certificate programs CCM has to offer.

The Open House for Adults is specifically designed for those who have been out of high school for a few years and are seeking to expand their professional opportunities.

The open house begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Student Community Center, Davidson Room, on CCM’s Randolph campus, 214 Center Grove Road.

CCM faculty and advisers will be on hand to address those special circumstances facing adult students, such as juggling work, family and college. Participants also will have the opportunity to learn about financial aid and scholarships, while discovering what career possibilities may be best for them.

At CCM, adults are presented with a broad selection of credit and non-credit offerings, from one-week to semester-long certificate programs, to more than 50 associate degree programs, along with the opportunity to earn a Rutgers bachelor’s degree on the college’s Randolph campus.
