Do you have 60 or more prior college credits and live in southeastern Connecticut? If so, you should check out the Off-Campus Programs page on the School of Continuing Education's website. Eastern maintains a site in Groton where Eastern courses are offered in the evenings and on Saturdays. You can complete a "Fast Track" Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) degree with a concentration in either Management or Human Services Administration. Classes are offered in seven-week modules, either two nights a week or one day a week on Saturdays. This program is especially appropriate for those with an associate degree from Three Rivers Community College.
Gail Turner is the Eastern Groton Site coordinator and a wonderful advisor. She will spend time with you to figure out the best way to complete your bachelor's degree in a timely way. You can even take advantage of our well-established Credit for Lifelong Learning program to get credit for what you have previously learned on the job. To get started, call Gail at (860) 446-9457 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
P.S. There is a special scholarship available for part-time students who attend the Groton Site. Through the generosity of the Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut, 10 individuals with financial need will be able to receive a $500 R.E.A.C.H. scholarship this fall. See Gail for details.
