Mountwest Community & Technical College is offering enrollment assistance through its E-Z Start program, the college recently announced.
The program is free but there are limited available scholarships. People may enroll now and classes will begin Sept. 16.
According to a news release from the college, faculty will guide applicants through admission by reviewing transcripts, evaluating financial aid options, arranging placement assessments, assisting career exploration and providing academic counseling and other information.
This mentoring role will be maintained through subsequent semesters up to graduation, the news release states.
"Learning is very much about courage. It's often not easy to take that first step to enroll in college, and charting unfamiliar territory can be daunting," said Dr. Keith Cotroneo, President of Mountwest, in the news release. "Through our E-Z Start program, we help students navigate their path to higher education and point them in the direction of success."
