JCTC to hold March 7 student open house

-A A +A

At the JCTC Carrollton Campus you can study biology, learn to be a nurse, take a Spanish class, join a club, march in a parade, get the first two years of college and transfer, and so much more.

Find out for yourself everything Jefferson Commun-ity and Technical College Carrollton has to offer at an open house March 7 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Tour classrooms and programs, meet faculty and get information about applying for financial aid.

You’ll also have the opportunity to visit with representatives of other colleges who have transfer agreements with JCTC.

The University of Louisville ULtra program will be on hand. ULtra is the university’s transfer program. By enrolling at JCTC but participating in ULtra, students get all the benefits for JCTC’s small classes and lower tuition but have opportunities to participate in U of L activities and organizations even before they transfer. They also receive transfer advising, ensuring a smooth transition.

Northern Kentucky University will be available at the Open House to discuss its PACE program. The PACE program is a highly structured, yet remarkably flexible program that will allow students to complete a bachelor’s degree in four years. The curriculum allows adult students to plan their academic calendar for up to four years in advance through convenient year-round enrollment sessions. Transfer credit may apply and could accelerate graduation for students who have already completed classes at other institutions.

Lindsey Wilson College will be available as it hopes to partner with JCTC-Carrollton to offer classes on the Carrollton Campus for both the Bachelor of Arts in Human Services and Counseling as well as a Master of Education in Counseling and Human Development.

Finally, Spencerian College is scheduled to be on hand to discuss its Massage Therapy Program.

Students wishing to attend college in the Fall should note that the priority deadline for the completed Free Application for Federal Student Aid is March 15. The FAFSA starts the process for all forms of financial aid, federal, state and local, at Jefferson.

The FAFSA can be completed online at FAFSA.ed.gov. The FAFSA can be completed after the priority deadline, but the late applicants risk missing out on aid.  A representative will be available during JCTC’s Open House to assist students in completing the FAFSA.

Other dates for the FAFSA workshop include: Feb. 28 and April 18 from 3:30-5:30 p.m. in Room 112.
