Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost to enroll in the Women in Transition (WIT) program? There is no cost to the participant.
Will I get college credit for enrolling in the WIT program?
No, WIT is a noncredit program. But it will help you navigate the registration process, introduce you to various academic and workforce programs the College has to offer and connect you with key individuals at the College. These tools and resources will provide you with many of the answers you need for your next steps.
Does the WIT program offer job placement?
No, WIT does not offer job placement services. However, the program does partner with the Career Centers on campus. The Career Centers are staffed with experienced career services specialists, who work with employers to identify employment opportunities in the region, as well as cooperative education and internship opportunities for students.
WIT also provides career development services. During the duration of the program, participants will have developed (or updated) their resume, completed nationally recognized career assessments for career direction and become proficient in interviewing. Our instructors assist participants in identifying transferable skills, lead them through mock interviews and help them explore “hot jobs” and career outlooks.
Can I enroll in the WIT program without a high school diploma or GED?
Yes. While having your high school diploma and/or your GED is beneficial upon enrollment into the program, it is not necessary. We do, however, require potential participants to have a minimum eighth-grade reading and writing skill level. Also, those without a high school diploma or GED will be connected to the GED program for enrollment. Your acceptance into the WIT program will be strongly based on your registration appointment with a WIT team member.
If I enroll in the WIT program, will I be a Tri-C student?
Yes, you will be considered a noncredit student with the full rights, privileges and responsibilities of a Tri-C noncredit student for the duration of the WIT session. However, you must enroll in another program after you complete the WIT program to maintain your student status.
If I have already earned a degree, is this an appropriate program for me?
Yes. Many women have enrolled in our program that have associate, bachelor's, master's and doctorate degrees. They find the program beneficial because it provides guidance through both personal and career decisions, especially during a transitional phase of their lives. Many of our degreed participants even enroll in the College for new pursuits after completing the WIT program.
