PARIS – The Maine Educational Opportunity Center will hold workshops on the essentials of college planning led by MEOC adviser Christy Le as follows:

Monday, May 16, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., South Paris Career Center, 232 Main St.

Friday, May 20, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., University College at Rumford/Mexico, 13 Brown St., Mexico.

Monday, May 23, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., Rumford Career Center, 35 Congress St., Rumford.

Adults considering college are invited to participate in the free college-planning workshops.

Unlike student financial aid programs, which help students overcome financial barriers to higher education, the center has been providing valuable support services to help students from low income and working families successfully enter college since 1991.

The center helps adult students to overcome class, social, academic and cultural barriers to higher education. Services include assistance in choosing a college, tutoring, personal and financial counseling, career counseling, assistance in applying to college, workplace and college visits and assistance in applying for financial aid.

Anyone wishing more information should call 1-800-281-3703 to register. All services are free.
