EDUCATIONAL ATTAINMENT

FAIRNESS, OPPORTUNITY AND ACCESS
Mentoring and computer support resources for distance learning students, high swiss replica watches speed Internet access from a small computer lab, testing services for enrolled and prospective students, and information resources for degree programs, training, financial aid, library books, and more. In addition, CCHE provides two types of scholarships that provide annual support to distance learning students enrolled in degree programs, and textbook scholarships that are awarded based on financial need.

SOCIAL CAPITAL
Work with local and regional businesses, organizations, and learning institutions to best serve the higher education needs of the community, and promote services already available, such as Adult Basic Education services, and Community Education classes.

Program Highlights

  • Annually, over 100 residents are enrolling college certificate or degree programs, and over 200 students enroll in CEUs or work related certificates
  • CCHE has served more than 2800 people - over 40% of the county population
  • As many as 12 scholarships are awarded annually thanks to two scholarship funds established in memory of Wes Hedstrom and Michel Beaupre
  • Enrollment continues to rise annually

New Opportunities

The North Shore Campus is an affordable alternative to the expense of a college campus, with  flexible programming that directly addresses the economic needs of our community. The decision to expand was based on solid research regarding student needs, employment needs, economic trends, and sustainability

Ron McGriff, the consultant who helped us choose our new facility location states, “Through effective promotion and high quality staff assistance, the CCHE program continues to grow and be a very important service for the region. Interviews with students revealed the high regard held for the abilities and assistance of CCHE staff members and also the importance to them of the availability of the organization’s services.”

Service and program expansion includes our Guest Lecture series, the Tech Squad project, and an increase in locally offered degree and certificate programs.

Course Delivery Available to CCHE Students

ON-SITE COURSES
Locally offered courses are taught by local instructors.

Interactive Television (ITV)
ITV provides real time connection with a campus classroom, often linking several locations for one class. 

ONLINE CLASSES breitling navitimer replica
Courses, certificates, and degree programs are online, and sometimes incorporate video components, such as Skype, Wimba, or ViVu. High speed Internet access is usually a must, so students taking online classes generally arrange afterhour access to the CCHE computer lab.

In addition to enrolled students, CCHE serves hundreds of adults, including high school students, who are researching their education options. Students who elect to take on-campus courses often make their decisions after exploring their options by utilizing the materials in our resource center. CCHE is not limited by the resources of one educational system, so individuals are able to consider quality distance education opportunities offered by institutions from around the world.
