The Washington County Community Foundation has partnered with Ivy Tech Southern Indiana to offer free college courses at the Washington County Learning Center during the spring semester. The for-credit classes will be offered free of charge to the first ten people who register, so interested individuals are encouraged to sign up right away.
There will be three courses taught at the Learning Center this spring, and the offer applies to all of them. The courses include:
MATH 023 Essentials of Algebra I Section W1M (3 credits) Tues/Thurs 9:30-10:45 a.m.
MATH 118 Concepts in Mathematics Section W1M (3 credits) Tues/Thurs 1:00-2:25 p.m.
IVYT 101 First Year Seminar Section W1M (1 credit) Tues/Thurs 2:30-3:20 p.m.
“My hope is that we can help some of our residents try college for the first time and also encourage others to return. Both of these goals tie in nicely with our Education Matters initiative,” commented Judy Johnson, Executive Director of the Washington County Community Foundation.
Only residents of Washington County will be eligible for the offer.
