Adults considering college are invited to participate in the free college-planning workshop sponsored by the Maine Educational Opportunity Center.

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.
