SCE workshop to target adults pondering degree completion
The Providence College School of Continuing Education is hosting a Degree Completion Workshop to help prospective students gauge how many more credits they need to complete their undergraduate degree.
Adult learners who are considering returning to school to complete their bachelor’s degree are invited to a specially designed Degree Completion Workshop sponsored by the Providence College School of Continuing Education (SCE) on Wednesday, August 13.
The workshop will take place from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Room 107 of Harkins Hall on campus.
The workshop, which will begin with a brief overview, is intended to provide prospective students the opportunity to get a personalized transcript evaluation from one of three advisers present. Advisers will review prior college transcripts, military transcripts, and testing program and other credits, and Degree Completion Workshop
convey how many classes the student needs to complete his or her bachelor’s degree.
"The value of attending the SCE Degree Completion Workshop is in gaining a specific idea of the number of credits that you already may have earned and leaving with a concrete plan for the number of credits needed to complete your degree” said Anne M. Nagle, SCE assistant dean.
In addition, advisers will share information on paying for school, financial aid and scholarships, academic support services, and the application and registration processes.
Nagle, who encouraged prospective students to bring family members and friends, said visitors will be exposed to the personal, caring reputation for which the SCE and its staff is known.
“It is a supportive environment you will find at the Providence College SCE. It doesn’t matter how long you have been out of school. We will be there to help you every step of the way — from application through graduation,” she said.
