Get "Back on Track" to Complete College Degree; Information Session Is Feb. 10

For release: January 12, 2011
For press information, contact Gabrielle Maxey, 901/678-2843

Are you a former college student who didn’t quite get around to graduating? Now the University of Memphis is making it easier for those students to return to school to earn their degrees.

The “Back on Track” initiative will hold a public information session Thursday, Feb. 10, between 5:30 and 7 p.m. in the University Center River Room. Nearby free parking is available in the Zach Curlin garage, at the southeast corner of the campus between Central and Walker.

Information will be available on readmission, financial aid, advising, academic transition, resources for veterans, adult student services, and more.

“Back on Track” is designed for adults who want to complete their degree in their original major or start a new one. Applicants must meet re-admission criteria.

Increasing the college-educated population would raise the educational level of the workforce, in turn boosting economic growth for the area, said Dr. Dan Lattimore, vice provost for Extended Programs. Some 23 percent of adults in Memphis have a college degree. Statistics also show that individuals with higher educational achievement have a significantly higher income over their lifetime.

Reservations for the session are encouraged, but not required. To register, or for more information, go online to www.memphis.edu/backontrack or call 901-678-1327.
