Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost to enroll in the Women in Transition Program? There is no cost. Enrollment in the WIT program is free of charge.
Will I get college credits for enrolling in the Women in Transition Program?
No. The Women in Transition Program is a non-credited program. The program will help you navigate the registration process, introduce you to various academic and workforce programs the college has to offer, as well as connect you with key individuals of the college. These tools and resources will provide you with many of the answers you will need for your next steps.
Is the WIT program a job placement program?
No. The WIT program 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.
The WIT program does, however, provide career development services. During the duration of the WIT program, participants will have developed (or updated) their resume, completed nationally recognized career assessments for career direction, and be proficient in interviewing. Our instructors assist participants in identifying transferable skills, lead the participants through mock interviews, and help women explore “hot jobs,” as well as career outlooks.
Can I enroll in the Women in Transition Program without a High School Diploma or GED?
Yes. Having obtained your High School Diploma and/or your GED would be beneficial upon enrollment into the program, but not necessary. We do however, require potential participants to have a minimum 10th-grade reading and writing skill level. In fact, those without a High School Diploma or GED will be connected to the GED program to start the process of enrolling in a GED class. Your acceptance into the WIT program will be strongly based upon your intake representative.
If I enroll in the WIT program, will I be a Tri-C student?
Yes. If you successfully enroll in the WIT program, you will be a Tri-C student with full rights, privileges, and responsibilities of a Tri-C student, for the duration of the WIT session. However, you must enroll in another program after the WIT program completion, in order 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's, Bachelor’s, or even Master’s degrees. They, too, find the program beneficial because it provides guidance through both personal and career decisions, especially during a transitional phase of life.
