"TTC has been a life saver for me. The support and encouragement I have received has literally bridged the gap to a higher level of education."
What is Transition to College?
Transition to College is an Adult Education Program for students who have graduated from high school and know that college is in their future; they are in need of more intense academic preparation before beginning a college program.
The program is a natural segue for GED, NEDP, and Advanced ESL students prior to entering post-secondary education. It is intended for the serious college student of any age who is returning to school after a period of time and who wants to prepare for college.
TTC emphasizes college study and survival skills—all the necessary skills for a successful college career - and supports students academically to build their reading, writing, and math skills. It provides classroom instruction with high expectations in a college-style environment, all in preparation for the Accuplacer Placement Assessment, which is required by the Community College of Rhode Island.
TTC students compete the FAFAS (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) to determine eligibility for financial assistance in order to plan for college tuition and expenses.
Upon completion of the Transition to College Program, students are empowered with essential skills--academic, personal, and professional--and are ready for the expectations of college life.
