Returning to School or Changing Careers Can Be Daunting. Let Us Help.
Returning to school to finish what you started can seem overwhelming…but it doesn’t have to be that way. Sometimes life just happens to get hard. We want to help you pick up where you stopped. Whether that means changing careers, learning a new trade, or getting on the path to a degree or certificate, we’re here to help you for free.
Let us connect you with an educational navigator, who will be your personal cheerleader and guide through the process of returning to school or job training. He or she will help you identify a goal, create a plan to reach that goal, and connect you to the resources that will help you achieve your goal at no cost to you.
Importantly, the navigators identify non-tuition financial barriers that may prevent you from finishing your degree or certificate and recommend solutions to address those barriers and set you on the road to success.
