11/04/10 Ancilla College announced plans to continue the “We Believe in You” program for spring 2011.

Designed for prospective students 21-years and older who have never attended college, “We Believe in You” allows a student to take up to three credit hours free of charge.

In addition, all students in the program will have an academic advisor to assist them with all aspects of attending college for the first time, including the registration process, filing a financial aid application, determining their education opportunities, and more.

“We are very pleased to be offering the ‘We Believe in You’ program again this spring,” said Sarah Lawrence, Assistant Director of Admissions.  “This program has been extremely successful in the past and I expect it to grow even more this year with the current state of the economy and depressed job market.

“The program is a wonderful opportunity for someone who has wanted to try college but never had the chance or was intimated by the whole process.”

Classes officially begin January 10, 2011, and are held on sight at the Donaldson-based campus.  Upon completion of a course, students will have access to their transcripts.

“We Believe in You” was originally created in 1988 by the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ, the religious order that sponsors Ancilla College.

Ancilla College is a Catholic, two-year, co-educational, liberal arts college in Donaldson, Indiana sponsored by the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ.
