CCC Adult Learning Community on Track for Fall

Friday, March 20, 2009


Plattsburgh, NY_Adults who have been contemplating a return to the classroom, whether having abandoned their dreams of college and a degree because of family or other obligations, are now being encouraged to consider a new approach being offered at Clinton Community College starting this fall.

According to Willow Nolland, coordinator of educational partnerships and academic services at CCC, it all came about when she met with the college’s learning skills coordinators to revisit the College Entry Program. Recognizing certain changes were needed, they proceeded to make improvements to the program and planned to have it in place and ready for students wishing to enroll during the fall semester.

Adult Learning Community students, 25 and older, will be taught by the college’s Learning Skills Coordinators for the fall semester. Students will take four classes, Eng 101, Math 098, CSC 102, and Soc 101, and will be eligible to earn 12 credits in just one semester. Classes, which begin August 28 and end December 18 are scheduled Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 2:05 p.m., including an hour for lunch. The schedule has been designed to give Adult Learning Community students time, in class, to share their college experiences with each other.

“The Adult Learning Community is a wonderful opportunity for students 25 and older to begin their college careers alongside others who are just like them,” said Willow Nolland. “Through collaboration and a team teaching approach, the Learning Skills Coordinators will provide an enhanced learning experience as students become part of the CCC family.”
