Free College Prep Offered at CASC


The Educational Opportunity Center (EOC) at Carl Albert State College (CASC) is presenting a four-part workshop series entitled “The Adult ABCs of Entering College and Technical School.”

The third in the series of free workshops is scheduled for April 11 at the Joe E. White Library on the CASC Poteau Campus. 

CASC EOC Coordinator Kelly Kellogg shared, “This workshop will be from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.”

She continued, “We are really excited about this workshop. Success Tips will be presented by CASC Mathematics Instructor Leslie Bain, CASC Director of Libraries Terri Carroll, and Division Chair for Communications and Fine Arts Susan Hill.”

Kellogg stated the ABC’s of this workshop will focus on:

A – How to ace the ACCUPLACER

B - How to bypass non-credit classes

C - How to complete the progress toward graduating with a degree

Since many prospective students enter college with low ACT scores or no ACT scores, one free ACCUPLACER study resource will be provided by EOC. According to Kellogg, this is utilized during the enrollment process as a beneficial tool to place students in the specific coursework that will provide the best foundation for success. Attendees will also be provided a $5 voucher from CASC Library Director Terri Carroll redeemable for repeating one section of the ACCUPLACER if necessary.

Information about the new “Fast Track” option as another way to bypass non-credit classes will be presented during the workshop as well. Refreshments will be provided by CASC Food Service, and area adults and high school seniors are encouraged to attend!

Educational Opportunity Center is one of the TRIO programs housed at Carl Albert State College, and is funded 100 percent by the U.S. Department of Education. The EOC program budget is $510,799 and serves 1675 participants.
