Workshops for college-bound adults in Simpson County scheduled for May

WKU’s Office of Cohort Programs is partnering with Simpson County Adult Education, Bowling Green Community College, and WKU R.E.A.L to offer four weeks of Higher Education Opportunity Workshops (HOW) for adult learners in the Franklin area who are interested in attending college.

The workshops will be held at 5 p.m. on May 7, 14, 21 and 28 at the Simpson County Adult Education office. “HOW” will prepare adults for a smooth transition into higher education.

Workshops will include instructions on admission and financial aid processes, as well as basic study skills and English and math reviews. Those who have not previously taken the ACT will have the opportunity to take the Accuplacer exam at the Simpson County Adult Education center (rather than being required to travel to WKU’s South Campus).

Cohort Programs will pay the $40 application fee for individuals who attend all four workshops and ultimately apply to WKU. Anyone interested in attending the workshops should contact Amy Fitzpatrick, Cohort Programs Specialist, at (270) 745-2710 or register online. Seating is limited.

Cohort Programs is a unit within the Division of Learning & Outreach (DELO) at WKU. DELO takes the educational resources of WKU to the citizens of Kentucky and around the world. DELO works with businesses and organizations to provide customized training, to plan special events, and to develop degree programs that meet their specific needs.
