    Community Colleges

    • Community colleges offer two year degrees and a variety of certificates in many technical fields. At a community college, it is likely an adult student will be required to take general education classes as well as trade-specific classes. This is particularly true if the adult is enrolled in a degree program. Community colleges are equipped to handle adult learners and often offer special resources to assist them.

    Technical Programs

    • Technical programs are industry- or trade-specific. They often lead to a certificate or a certification exam. These courses may be offered by a company, or they can be offered at a technical school or community college. Community education programs, often run through high schools, may provide training as well.

    Funding Options

    • There are scholarships, loans and grants for displaced workers. There are also scholarships for single parents as well as grant and loan money from state and federal government sources. The college financial aid office is a good place to start, but personal knowledge of individual circumstances guides choices best.
