See how easy it is to get started at Moraine Valley Community College at the spring Open House on Saturday, April 20, from 9 a.m. to noon. The event will be held in Building M on the college’s main campus at 9000 W. College Parkway in Palos Hills.

Prospective students and their families will hear a brief presentation about the college; learn about the admission, financial aid and transfer processes; and discover how to earn college credit while still in high school. Presentations will be given in English and Spanish.

“The Open House is a great springboard for students looking to continue their education after high school, come back to finish a degree or start a new career. The resources available at the Open House provide prospective students with everything they need to make Moraine Valley their first choice for college,” said Andy Sarata, director of Admissions and Recruitment.

The college offers over 130 degree and certificate programs. Attendees can explore career programs in health care, the trades, education, information technology and more. They also can learn how to save thousands of dollars by starting their bachelor’s degree at Moraine Valley before transferring to a four-year institution.

Moraine Valley faculty and staff will be available at information tables to answer questions. Financial aid representatives also will assist students with FAFSA completion. See a list of required documents you should bring at
