Learn more about Middlesex Community College’s nationally recognized Transition Program, a two-year, noncredit certificate program for students with learning/cognitive disabilities. This unique, specialized program is designed for students without the skills necessary to complete requirements for an associate degree.

A public information session for prospective students and their families will be held Thursday, March 4, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., in MCC’s Bedford Campus Center, Café East, 591 Springs Road.

Transition Program students attend classes designed to teach independent-living skills, computer and job-survival skills, and social skills. They will also be placed in an internship program. Transition students may participate in all Middlesex student activities, while receiving specialized coursework and training tailored to meet their needs.

Participants will receive an overview of the program, as well as in-depth information on the curriculum, application procedures, details of the required internship portion of the program, and prospective job opportunities.

Transition Program candidates should have a high-school diploma or GED credential, interest in training for entry-level work in business and industry, fifth- to eighth-grade level reading and math skills, and the maturity and emotional stability to effectively participate in a program on a college campus.

To register for the information session, call 781-280-3630.
