Migrant Education Students Enroll Early at Hartnell

May 12th, 2009

Hartnell College will host 170 high school juniors and seniors from Monterey County Office of Education’s Migrant Education program on Thursday and Friday, May 14 and 15, to register them for classes and to smooth the transition between high school and college.

These second and third Migrant Outreach Days--the first was on Monday-will allow students to select their classes, take placement exams, and learn about Hartnell’s Digital Bridge Academy that can improve students’ success in college.

The students will attend a series of workshops designed to inspire and acquaint them with the services and programs available to help them succeed in college, including financial aid, transfer, registering for classes, and creating an education plan.

Monterey County has more than 28,000 migrant children eligible for migrant education services, which include academic tutoring, leadership programs, and other academic and social support services and activities. At last year’s event, 60 seniors registered for classes at Hartnell.
