Maybe it’s been a few years since you hit the books, or maybe you are new to college campus terminology. Possibly, you hope to find an ally for negotiating an ever expanding array of technology. Would you like to meet other nontraditional students like you?

In an effort to get you off on the right foot, the Span Plan Program offers an orientation session for nontraditional students during the week prior to classes starting every fall semester. This orientation is open all nontraditional students. Children and family members are always welcome at Span Plan events.

The orientation program includes:

  • Bowling and pizza and a chance to get to know other nontraditional students
  • A panel of seasoned nontraditional students sharing their wisdom & experiences
  • a financial aid administrator to answer all your individual questions
  • A brief overview of the Span Plan Program (available services as well as grant and scholarship info).
  • An orientation packet with an array of student services information – a collection that we’ve put together with information you will need to know.

Please RSVP online by Friday, August 11.
