About Adult Reentry


The Adult Reentry Center, under the auspices of Student Development Services, provides a variety of resources for the returning adult student who is seeking information about educational goals and career options.


Adult Reentry Students come to Grossmont College for a variety of reasons including the following:

  • Ready for the challenge of a college education.
  • Did not finish high school and now desire an education.
  • Divorced or widowed; veteran; displaced worker
  • College career was interrupted because of work, family and/or economic situation.
  • Want to make a career or lifestyle change.
  • Want to improve specific skills or fulfill goals.
  • Learn new skills for a job promotion.
  • Embark upon new challenges for self-fulfillment.

The 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.
