Muskegon Community College's "College Bootcamp" seminar is a FREE 6-week program designed to assist adult students beginning or returning to college after a long period of time away from a classroom.

Adults of all ages—20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond—are going back to school to get ahead in today’s competitive job market and build upon their educational foundation. And, you’re thinking it might be time to do the same.

But taking the big step of continuing your education after you have been in the workforce a while is a very personal decision, often filled with serious questions and concern.

You may be wondering:

· Will I be successful?

· How will it pay off in the end?
