College Transitions

The College Transitions Program provides free advising and career counseling for Adult Learning Center and Nashua Community College students.  The Adult Education Counselor will work one on one or in small groups with students needing help transitioning to college.

Developmental math and reading/writing courses are offered by Adult Learning Center teachers on the Nashua Community College campus.  These classes help students improve their Accuplacer scores in order to qualify for college level classes.

Who We Serve

Anyone who has achieved his or her HiSET, GED, or high school diploma. Students are required to live or work in New Hampshire.

What We Offer

Developmental math (MATH090) prepares students for college level math with the co-requisite workshop. All students will re-take the Accuplacer test at the end of the semester.

Developmental reading/writing (ENGL090) prepares students for college level English with the co-requisite workshop. All students will re-take the Accuplacer test at the end of the semester.

Classes are offered during the fall, spring and summer semesters (with minimum enrollment). We offer class in the morning, evening or online (work at your own pace with the help of a teacher).

Step 5: For students who are attending in person, you can begin class at NCC after completing this process.  For online students, the teacher will contact you with more information.
