9-22-06


WEST WINDSOR, NJ -- High school students and their parents are invited to an Information Session Open House at Mercer County Community College to learn how to begin college at Mercer, then transfer for a four-year degree. The event takes place on Thursday, Oct. 19, at 6 p.m. in the Student Center on the West Windsor Campus.

College administrators and career counselors will present an abundance of information about Mercer's programs, the ease of transferring Mercer credits to four-year colleges, and how to save thousands on the cost of a bachelor's degree. Participants will be able to explore Mercer's 64 associate degree majors and numerous certificate programs, and find out how they can finance their education through financial aid programs. Families will learn how to qualify for NJSTARS, a state program that provides free tuition for New Jersey high schoolers who graduate in the top 20% of their class.

MCCC's West Windsor campus is located at 1200 Old Trenton Road, next to Mercer County Park. Reservations for the Information Session are not required. For further information email or call the Admissions Office at 609-570-3795.
