An accelerated education and training program offered at South Louisiana Community College is offering seven information and registration sessions for interested students.
The PACE program affords adult learners without a GED/high school diploma an opportunity to earn college credit and train in high-demand careers while pursuing a high school equivalency diploma (GED or HISET). Recent high school graduates, adult education graduates, or individuals who need assistance with transitioning into college-level courses can also enroll.
Students who participate in the PACE program can:
· earn industry-based certifications in Information, Industrial, and Health Technology pathways;
· earn credentials at an accelerated pace in as little as 6-12 months;
· enter the workforce sooner with valuable skills; and
· take advantage of structured in-class support and tutoring services.
New students can learn more about PACE and register by attending one of the following information sessions:
Monday, August 4: Lafayette Campus at 11 a.m. in room 411 of the Ardoin Building;
Tuesday, August 5: C.B. Coreil Campus in Ville Platte at 10 a.m. in room 103;
