College Transitions Program


with Anja Hanson, Portland Adult Education

What does a College Transitions program offer you?

  • Free courses to build skills
  • Academic, financial aid & career advising
  • Digital preparation tools
  • Access to free training programs for employment or to try out possible careers
  • Opportunities to meet other students wanting to go to college, just like you

Why prepare at Portland Adult Education rather than going straight to college?

  • Support: Preparing for college and a career can be complicated; we offer guidance to help you plan.
  • Quality: Our teachers design courses that focus on  the necessary skills to be successful in college.
  • Cost: Developmental courses in college cost more than $300, but they may not earn college credit. Try similar courses for free at PAE and practice balancing work, school, and other responsibilities.
