Program aimed at first time, non-traditional students
SARANAC LAKE – North Country Community College is giving those who’ve been unsure about going to college the chance to try it out at no cost with the college’s new “6 on Us” program.
Starting this fall semester, 6 on Us allows eligible students to take their first six college credits for free, a savings of $1,400 per student. The program is available to first-time, new to college, non-traditional students on all three of the college’s campuses: Malone, Saranac Lake and Ticonderoga.
“There are a lot of reasons why some people aren’t able to commit to trying college, including work, family and financial obligations,” said Chris Tacea, NCCC’s Dean of Admissions. “By covering the cost of the first six credits for our new-to-college non-traditional students, we’re creating an opportunity for them to try out the college experience in a comfortable, risk-free way – all before they spend a dime.”
For more information about 6 on Us, call 888-TRY-NCCC or email email@example.com.
