    **DUE DATE EXTENDED… see below**

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!! We hope everyone is feeling ready to get back in the swing of things. Here’s some information about a program CCC has going on that you or someone you know might want to apply for. They just extended the application deadline. Check this out:

    CCC College Bridge program deadline has been extended to January (you’ll see on the flyer that it says 12/7/18).

    So, anyone who completed GED (or those who will complete GED® Test Credential by February) can apply.

    Students in the Bridge Program will take 6 college credits –First Year Experience + either Math or Writing/Reading (WRD)--together as a cohort three afternoons a week in winter 2019. This is a great opportunity to get 6 free college credits! It’s totally free – tuition, fees, and books are paid!

    CCC College Bridge Program New Application Deadline:
    • Best Deadline to apply: Friday, January 11th
    • Final Deadline to apply: Wednesday, January 16th

    To apply, students go to: (From that website, click on the gray bar that says “Bridge Program.” Then you will see an orange box to click to sign up.)

    ***Note: Students must have their college placements done—so they must have gone through official PASS Placement Advising—before applying.***

    Priority placement will go to recent high school completers (early graduates) and GED completers, as it says on the flier on a weighted lottery system. Students will be notified about placement into the program in the first two weeks of January and the classes start Feb 5.

    For more information, contact High School Connections at 503-594-3161 or

    The Bridge Program flier is attached.
