Learn more about Middlesex Community College’s nationally recognized Transition Program, a two-year, noncredit certificate program for students with learning/cognitive disabilities. A Public Information Session for Transition Program prospective students and their families will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 13, in MCC’s Bedford Campus Center, Café East, 591 Springs Road.

Transition is a unique, specialized program designed for students without the skills necessary to complete requirements for an associate degree. 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.

Information session 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.
