April 6 Event for Former PVCC Students Who Didn't Graduate
Charlottesville, VA - Piedmont Virginia Community College invites former students who enrolled since 2010 in a PVCC degree or certificate program, completed some classes but didn't finish, to attend a special event on campus Saturday, April 6.
PVCC academic advisors will be available that day between 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. to help former students develop a plan to complete their education and register for upcoming classes. Financial aid advisors will answer questions and help attendees apply for financial aid. Refreshments will be available.
"PVCC wants to help our former students complete their education," commented PVCC President Frank Friedman. "It's their ticket to a brighter future. In the past few years," he added, "the unemployment rate for college graduates never exceeded 6.8 percent, but for non-graduates it reached 13.4 percent. The best jobs of today and tomorrow will go to those who hold a college credential."
President Friedman sent a personal letter to approximately 2,300 former PVCC students who attended during the 2010-11 or 2011-2012 academic years inviting them to the April 6 event. The former students reside in the City of Charlottesville, and Albemarle, Buckingham, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa and Nelson counties.
