New Options Program

Are you an adult thinking about…

  • beginning college after being out of school for a long time,
  • taking classes to upgrade your skills for re-entering the work force,
  • getting a college degree to help you get a better job,
  • fulfilling a lifelong dream of attending college?

The New Options Program is designed to support non-traditional adults–single adults (25 and older); single parents; married adults; or GED recipients–who are beginning college for the first time or who are returning to college after an interruption in their education.

The program offers free seminars each semester at the Jefferson, Shelby, Pell City and Clanton campuses. These seminars help you prepare for classes and cover many topics including beginning college, applying for financial aid, study skills, job search skills and becoming a successful student.
