Orientations help parents/guardians understand the college experience

Fall Semester classes will start soon at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College, but there is still time for new and returning students to enroll. Parents and guardians of college-age students are invited to a Parent Orientation Session, where they can learn about the enrollment process, financial aid, academic and technical programs, student organizations, career and transfer options and more. There will also be an opportunity for campus tours.
The Parent Orientation Session is Tuesday, July 19 at 6 p.m. in Room 212 of the Regional Postsecondary Center on ECTCs main campus. Recent high school graduates considering their college options are also welcome to attend.
ECTC offers two-year transfer degrees, as well as a broad selection of technical programs that lead to rewarding career opportunities. Classes and programs are available through flexible options to serve a variety of student needs. Sessions begin August 15, September 12 and October 10, both in the classroom and online. A Weekend College Program is designed to serve working adults, with online classes supplemented by classroom meetings on two Saturdays a month.
General registration is open to all new and returning students, August 2 4 from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. daily. A Parent Orientation Session for students who have enrolled will be held on Thursday, August 4 at 6:30 p.m. in Room 212 of the Regional Postsecondary Center.
