Clackamas Community College is offering four programs that provide extra academic support and funding during winter term. Students can get career ready in six months or less, and may qualify for funding for tuition, fees, textbooks, transportation and more.
Thanks to funding from the Future Ready Oregon Career Pathways grant, CCC can provide opportunities for people from diverse backgrounds to earn a certificate and/or degree in high-wage, high-demand industries at little to no cost for the students.
Participating programs include:
For those who are new to college or returning after some time away, these programs offer extra support with dedicated staff and academic help as well as course supplies, materials and equipment.
“These programs will get you on the fast track to work, and they have extra support both in and outside of the classroom, including help to get you started, test-taking assistance and math support,” Armetta Burney, dean of technology, applied science and public services, said.
To be eligible, applicants must identify as people of color, women, low-income, rural and frontier communities, veterans, people with disabilities, justice-involved, members of Oregon’s federally recognized Native American tribes, people experiencing discrimination in employment on the basis of age or members of the LGBTQ-plus community.
Winter term classes start January 9. For more information or to get started, contact Workforce Development at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-594-6246.
