Moraine Valley Community College is offering a first-of-its-kind Virtual College Exploration Week June 8 through June 12, to allow prospective students and families to learn about the college, its programs, and services.

Since the Palos Hills campus is closed and operations have moved online, college staff devised the weeklong webinar series to remotely share information about academics, financial aid, transfer partnerships, dual credit for high school students, career services, support services and much more.

All of the available sessions, including a few in Spanish, can be viewed on the event’s website. Those interested can RSVP, watch in real-time or view recordings on the site after the event.

“Making a decision on where to start or continue your education isn’t easy for people right now,” said Dr. Normah Salleh-Barone, vice president for Student Development. “These webinars will not only help prospective students and families learn about the college, but they also will remind people of the long-term value of a degree or certificate.”

Earning a college credential results in greater earnings potential, better job prospects and more upward mobility.

“Once you earn a degree or certificate, no one can take it away from you,” Salleh-Barone said. “It’s gives you greater professional and personal security moving forward.”

Moraine Valley is one of the largest community colleges in Illinois and offers more than 130 academic programs designed to prepare students for transfer to a four-year school or to enter a career. Tuition is a fraction of the cost of other colleges and universities, making it an affordable and viable option.
