LEWISTON — Lewiston Adult Education is accepting applications for the Summer College Transitions Program. This program is designed for individuals looking to increase their earning potential by earning a two- or four-year degree. Any GED/hHigh school diploma-holding resident of Androscoggin County accepted to the program may enroll at no cost.

Designed to help students prepare for, get accepted to and be successful in college, the program provides a comprehensive review of reading, writing and math in a setting which simulates an actual college environment. Students who have been away from the classroom benefit from working in a college-style setting before enrolling in college.

Other obstacles unrelated to academics, such as the college application process, financial aid issues and any logistical challenges unique to the student, will also be addressed in the program.

Three sections of the College Transition Program are available: 1) Tuesdays and Thursdays 9 a.m.-noon; 2) Tuesdays and Thursdays 6-9 p.m.; or 3) Wednesdays 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Classes will begin Tuesday, May 24, and meet at the B-Street Community Center.

Interested candidates must contact Elayne Bean at 795-4141 to schedule an advising appointment prior to registration. For more detailed information and a full list of courses visit www.lewistonadulted.org or call 795-4141.
