Institutions Join Forces To Help Adults Prepare for College

A new facility that will help adults pursue a college degree will open next month in west Louisville.The Signature Partnership Education Center will be located in Parrish Hall on the Simmons College campus.Simmons and three other Louisville-based institutions----Spalding University, the University of Louisville, and Jefferson Community and Technical College---are partners in the effort.U of L President James Ramsey says the center will offer help with testing, academic advising and getting tuition assistance."It’s often somewhat intimidating, somewhat uncertain, particularly when it comes to student financial aid. The application process for that can be sort of a scary process, a bureaucratic process).The center is being launched with the help of a $50,000 grant from the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education.
