Why University Center?

"Distance and convenient to do my program close to home... Been able to take classes at CLC that were requirements for my undergraduate program. Since I was paying out of pocket I saved money by taking two classes at CLC and transferring credits toward my degree. I was working at the time while doing my program so the University Center worked perfectly for me because of their night  classes and programs to accommodate working students."


What advice would you give to current students?

"Do your homework and look into the programs University Center has to offer. Ask questions to an advisor about financial aid, scholarships, and benefits of enrolling at University Center."
