Career and College Transitions

College and Career Transitions

Many adult education students wish to prepare for a career or for college. Some adult education centers offer postsecondary transitions programs to help their students take the next step. These services are open to adult education students, adult high school graduates, GED® and HiSET graduates, or any adult who needs improved skills to advance on the job or enter career training.


Each local transitions program is unique, but most offer the following services:

  • Career counseling
  • Information about job training courses
  • College information
  • Assistance with applications for jobs
  • Assistance with applications for collegeadmission
  • Assistance with financial aid applications
  • College prerequisite courses

Some adult education centers also offer college preparation classes.
