Midland - During the next few months, the Midland College Adult Education Department will be offering several opportunities for Midlanders to get extra help to prepare for college-level classes.
1. Every Monday through Thursday, from 12:30-3:30 p.m., free assistance is provided to those individuals who want to pass the GEDŽ exam and to people who have not passed one or more parts of the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) college assessment exam to determine basic skills in reading, mathematics and writing. TSI is a state-legislated program designed to improve student success in college. For more information, call (432) 685-6819.

3. The Intensive College Readiness Program (ICRP) offers students FREE TSI preparation and a scholarship for college credit courses. The program is provided through a grant from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board with the purpose of providing intensive, accelerated instruction in reading, writing and math skills that will help students perform better on college entrance exams, place out of one or more developmental education classes and improve academic skills. Two evening sessions are being offered this spring at the Midland College Cogdell Learning Center, 201 W. Florida, beginning March 17. Orientation for this program is March 3-7, and pre-registration is essential. Please call (432) 684-5323 to register.
