WKCTC Offering Enrollment Assistance for Displaced Mid-Continent Students at Skilled Craft Training Center

West Kentucky Community and Technical College (WKCTC) personnel will be at the Skilled Craft Training Center near Mayfield Tuesday, April 22 providing on-site enrollment assistance to students who have been displaced by the closing of Mid-Continent University.

We are committed to providing an affordable, quality education for anyone in our area who wants to earn a degree to enter the workforce or earn a degree to transfer, said Nate Slaton, WKCTC interim dean of enrollment management. We are ready to assist our community during this challenging time and show sensitivity and dedication to make a college education a reality for any displaced students.

WKCTC offers more than 200 associate degree, diploma and certificate career and academic options in more than 40 programs. Financial aid counselors, advisors and admissions personnel will be at the center located at 70 Hickory Road in Hickory from 3 7 p.m.

During the on-site sessions, prospective students will receive help with completing WKCTCs admissions application, transferring Workforce Investment Act/Trade Adjustment Assistance (WIA/TAA) benefits, and researching available programs and services as well as advising and counseling about transferring to WKCTC. Other topics of discussion will include building a class schedule, online learning, and Learn on Demand - a modular flexible, online course delivery method that allows students to start a course or courses at anytime.

Students will also receive financial aid assistance in filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Individual counseling will also be available to discuss past loan debt and grant disbursements as well as current loan and grant eligibility.
