Thinking about taking college classes as a new or returning adult learner, but not sure how to start? Then attend one of Moraine Valley Community College’s adult information sessions.

Whether it’s been years since you’ve entered a classroom and you’re ready to get back to academia or you’re looking to improve job skills or change careers, come discover the possibilities at this free event.

This hour-long session is the first step for adults to learn about programs and resources at Moraine Valley in a relaxed setting. Adults who will benefit from this session include those who have never stepped foot on a college campus, are in a career transition, re-entering the workforce, returning to complete a degree or professional certificate, and those who have taken classes at the college but have not pursued a degree. Get a feel for college before committing to coursework.

Moraine Valley offers adult information sessions on the following Wednesdays: May 4, July 13 and Aug. 3 at 6 p.m., in the Student Services Center (Building S), Room S117A, on the main campus, 9000 W. College Pkwy., Palos Hills.

Sessions also will be held Tuesdays, May 24 and Aug. 2 at 6:30 p.m., in the college’s Education Center at Blue Island, 12940 S. Western Ave., and Thursdays, June 2 and Aug. 4 at 6 p.m., in the college’s Southwest Education Center, 17900 S. 94th Ave., in Tinley Park.

During the sessions, Moraine Valley staff will discuss details on the college and how to address challenges as a student. Career programs and degrees will be explained, as well as programs and resources for low-income adults, displaced workers and adults returning to the workplace. Adults can get help registering and enrolling in classes.
