Have you taken some college but not finished a degree, diploma or certificate? For many adults, a postsecondary credential is the main hurdle standing in the way of sustainable employment.

Two-year colleges provide flexible options for post-traditional students, such as credit for prior learning, online courses and accelerated learning opportunities. In addition, two-year colleges have strong connections to local industries and are able to connect students to high-wage/demand occupations by reacting quickly to changing economic and workforce conditions.

Lake Superior College, in collaboration with Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College and Pine Technical and Community College, will host a free workshop for adults who have some college but no credentials. The workshop will be held from 2-4 p.m. or 4:30-6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 28, at the Lake Superior College Atrium, 2101 Trinity Road, Duluth. Free transportation is available and will be provided from Pine City, Hinckley, and Cloquet (Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College).

The free workshop will highlight each college’s adult-centered support services and also educational programs in high-demand, well-paying job areas.

The free workshop will include information on:
