Free College Preparation Courses
The College of Professional Studies first offered free college preparation courses for adults in northwest Indiana in October 2010. A grant from the Ball Venture Fund has made it possible to expand the program to additional locations.
These courses are designed to help prepare nontraditional students for college coursework. However, the courses are open to any adult regardless of whether the student intends to enroll in a degree program at Indiana Tech or any other college. The goal is simply to help them brush up on skills that are commonly in demand in the workforce.
