Returning to school years – even decades – after one’s last classroom experience can be a daunting experience.
Grossmont College’s Adult Reentry program, geared to help adult learners reacclimate and succeed as students, is conducting a virtual open house from noon to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 7, in preparation for the fall 2021 semester starting Aug. 16.

- Financial aid and scholarship opportunities
- Meeting college administrators and staff
- Student services and resources
- Exploring careers and majors
- Student success stories
- Taking a virtual campus tour

As part of Grossmont College’s Student Development Services, the Adult Reentry Center provides a multitude of resources for the returning adult student seeking help developing educational goals and career options. Reentry students fit many profiles, from the high-school dropout wanting to give education another go, military veterans unsure about their futures, to the displaced worker in need of new workforce skills.
"The Adult Reentry Center acts as a bridge between the college and the community, providing referral services, information relating to college and community agencies, job placement, professional and academic counseling, self-help programs, financial aid and transportation,” said Grossmont College Career Center supervisor Renee Nasori. “The reentry student typically has special needs that can be addressed very effectively through the center.”
