AUBURN – Central Maine Community College will hold an open house from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 1.

Faculty members, students and services staff will be on hand to provide information on financial aid, the admissions process, options for transferring to four-year colleges and to give tours of the college. There will be refreshments and door prizes.

The college offers more than 25 career or technical programs, the newest of which is in education. That program prepares students for entry-level educational support positions at kindergarten through grade 12 level and may provide transfer opportunities to baccalaureate programs.

Graduates are prepared to work in learning environments, supporting professional educators in the teaching/learning process, and to apply for professional certification for education technician. That level of preparation is required by the state Department of Education and the Federal No Child Left Behind Act.

“Students who are not sure of their career or educational goals are welcome at Central Maine Community College,” said Elizabeth Oken, admissions director. “Our general studies program offers courses they will need in virtually any program they choose. Our liberal studies program offers an affordable, accessible place to begin a college career for those who expect to continue their education at the bachelor’s degree level.”

Courses and degrees are transferable to the University of Southern Maine and other four-year colleges and universities. Students can start most programs in January.

The college can provide financial aid and other student assistance, and students may participate in a variety of extracurricular activities, including athletics. Housing is available on campus. For more information, call 755-5273.
