en years ago, Facebook didn’t exist. Ten years before that, we didn’t have the Web. So who knows what jobs will be born a decade from now? Though unemployment is at a 25‑year high, work will eventually return. But it won’t look the same. We will see a more flexible, more freelance, more collaborative work world. It will be run by a generation with new values. Tarrant County College is crucial to assuring that Tarrant County has the highly skilled workforce needed in the competition for jobs. Anyone with a desire to learn and grow can find opportunity at TCC, including returning adults, veterans, underserved populations, and aspiring entrepreneurs. TCC provides a gateway to thousands of students to good jobs and a better life. TCC, a comprehensive two-year institution was established in 1965 and is dedicated to providing quality education that exceeds the expectations of the people of Tarrant County. With six beautiful campuses and nearly 50,000  students enrolled in associate degree and technical programs, TCC is the seventh largest among Texas colleges and universities. At TCC we focus on learning. This means we offer flexibility and variety in the way we schedule and deliver learning opportunities. It means we recognize that your learning style is as individual as your lifestyle. It means that we are constantly updating and upgrading not only what you’ll learn, but also how you’ll learn. Our exceptional instruction will excite your curiosity, develop your critical thinking and give you new problem-solving skills.

GET TRAINING IN DENTAL HYGIENE

One in 19 Tarrant County residents will take a course at Tarrant County College this year. Is getting your education at TCC right for you? Here are some popular reasons students go. • Affordable tuition. At $52 per semester hour, TCC costs significantly less than public and private four-year colleges and universities. • Convenient locations. With six campuses across Tarrant County, many students are able to attend TCC while living at home, saving on campus-living costs. Plus, our new Trinity River East • Small classes. The average class at TCC has fewer than 30 students, which means you receive personal attention from your professors.

. • Flexible class schedules: Classes are offered during the day, evening, and weekends to accommodate work schedules. More than 80% of TCC students work part- or full-time jobs and many have family responsibilities. • Transfer to a four-year college or university: Students frequently begin their undergraduate studies at TCC and finish at a four-year school. •Professors concentrate on teaching: TCC instructors focus on teaching students and tend not to be distracted by research and publishing. Professors also have extensive practical experience in the subjects they teach. Full-time TCC faculty spend more hours in the classroom than faculty in any other sector of higher education. • Direction for high school students still seeking a career path: At TCC, students can explore different subject areas before committing to a program or enrolling in a certificate program in preparation for a specific career, trade, or profession.

•P  romote skill building and job advancement: Students can take continuing education courses to meet specific needs and interests for job advancement, job placement, and personal development. Tarrant County College also is an Achieving the Dream institution. Achieving the Dream is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to helping more community college students, particularly students of color and low-income students, to succeed. Built on the values of equity and excellence, Achieving the Dream advances community college student success through work on four fronts: transforming community colleges, influencing policy, developing new knowledge, and engaging the public.

For over forty years, Amberton University has focused on the needs of working adults seeking higher education. Amberton is not for everyone. There are no athletics or social clubs. While these activities are important to the traditional student, Amberton is best suited to older, non-traditional students who are serious about pursing a quality education. The average age for the Amberton student is thirty seven. Convenience is important to the adult student and in this regard Amberton on-site lecture classes are offered in Garland and Frisco during the evening hours and on Saturdays, as well as online class offerings for those students needing more flexibility. On-site classes meet once a week during the four ten-week sessions. This allows Amberton students to balance family and career while attending college. Affordability and value are also important to the adult student. Amberton was recently rated a “best buy” by the consumer guide GetEducated.com. Tuition is a very reasonable $235 per credit hour, among the lowest in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. The affordability of Amberton classes allows the majority of Amberton students to graduate debt free. Amberton is fully accredited and classes are taught by a prestigious list of professors, all professionals in their field. The University offers a variety of undergraduate programs in the areas of Business, Management, and Project Management. Graduate degrees include MBAs in Business, Management, Leadership and Project Management as well as programs in Human Resource Training and Development and Human Relations. Amberton has one of the largest Counseling programs in the area with Master’s degrees in Professional, School and Christian Counseling. When you arrive at the point in your career where increasing your education is essential to advancement, look to Amberton University. Call 972/279-6511; visit www.Amberton.edu; email Advisor@amberton.edu for more information. Apply now. The Fall session begins Saturday, September 8, 2012.
