Take the Plunge Day Aimed at Helping Adult Students Start College

John Wood Community College wants to help adults “Take the Plunge” to start or continue their college education in the New Year.  JWCC will host “Take the Plunge Tuesday” January 30  from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

During the day, adults can drop in or make an appointment to fit their schedule to take action on various steps to go back or continue college. JWCC admissions and academic advisors can answer questions, help students complete admission and financial aid applications, talk about new career options and complete registration processes. If prospective adult students can bring copies of high school or college transcripts and 2015 tax information, they may be able to complete most processes to enroll in upcoming classes in February and March.

“Adults have crazy schedules and sometimes they just need one day when they decide it’s time to ‘take the plunge’ and get things done.  At this point in the year their children are back in school, so it’s a good time for them to do something for themselves, “Billy Schaffer, JWCC director of admissions said. 

Although many courses started January 16, adults can enroll in 12-week courses that start February 12 or eight-week online classes that begin March 19.

Appointments are encouraged, but not required and can be made by going to jwcc.edu/plunge or by calling JWCC admissions at 217.641.4337.
