OXFORD – Students taking accounting through SAD 17 Adult Education will now be able to earn college credit.

Adult Ed Director Judy Green said Thursday that the district recently signed an articulation agreement with Central Maine Community College in Auburn, so those taking Accounting I can earn 3 credits.

Green said participants must take the course, which runs for the entire school year, to get full credit.

She said there is an agreement pending so college credit can be received for the keyboarding course.

“We would like to get as many articulation agreements as we can,” Green said. “We’re hoping to heard about the keyboarding any day and hope to get English and math on line in January.

“These courses will be a good way to get people involved in college work without having to travel, or to just try it out,” she said.

Adult ed courses start Sept. 8 and the first accounting class is Sept. 10. The cost for the accounting class is $100 plus workbook. Adult Ed loans the text to those taking the class.

“An advantage of taking our course is that you will get the same information spread out from September to May in a more comfortable and supportive environment,” she said. “At the college level, the class would be taught in one semester.”
