Who:Everyone interested in College!

It’s spring break – offering the perfect opportunity to explore ways to shape your future. Four of Genesee Community College’s campus centers are hosting a “Catch the Wave” educational opportunity providing enrollment and registration services to community members on April 15, 16 and 17 starting at 9 a.m. and continuing through the day as needed. Student services including academic and financial advisement, application assistance, financial aid, course registration and other technical assistance will be provided. Potential students can take the placement test and register for summer and fall courses if they bring official transcripts from their high school. The staff at the campus centers in Wyoming County (Arcade and Warsaw) and Livingston County (Dansville and Lima) will be ready to assist students of all ages, all career interests and all walks of life.

Scholarship opportunities are among the dynamic opportunities for local residents to explore. The Genesee Promise Plus program offering summer scholarships for up to two courses for GLOW-area high school graduates and juniors, as well as adults who have never attended college before are among the important topics to explore. New students who would like to fill out their FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) are encouraged to bring their most recent tax return and photo ID, and any record of high school graduation or GED.

“With winter finally behind us and people thinking about getting their tax returns, we want to be sure that every new or returning student no matter what age has the opportunity for college enrollment,” Patty Chaya, associate dean of the Lima and Warsaw Campus Centers. “Our doors are open and we hope anyone who has even remotely considered college to stop in and ‘Catch the Wave’ toward a career they love.”
