How do I enter the program?

 Entry is done on an individual student basis.  Ideally, students are 16 year of age or older with 20 or more credits.  Priority is often given to students who already have a job.

To enter the program, you must first meet with the Student Success Teacher at College Heights – Erin Rivers.  Simply call and make an appointment.  The purpose of the meeting is to review your transcript and school history.  Together, you will determine what courses are still needed to graduate and whether the CIC program is a good fit for you. After registering, call the teacher to set up a meeting at the your earliest convenience.  The teacher will explain the program in more detail.  If you still feel that it is a good fit, you can start right away.
