Free book for college students at UH-MC

The Educational Opportunity Center at the University of Hawaii Maui College is offering free copies of “100 Things Every Adult College Student Needs to Know,” a comprehensive overview of the steps needed to start the academic journey.

The book will be available for a limited time, according to an announcement.

“We’re getting into the full swing of college fair season for high school seniors, but we want everyone to realize that the EOC is here to support adult students too,” said Mona Stevenson, EOC representative. “A lot of times parents deferred their own dream to provide for their family, and many Maui County residents are holding down more than one job just to make ends meet. But there are many high-wage, rewarding careers here in Maui if you have the qualifications and skills.

“The EOC can help with advising, filling out applications and financial aid paperwork, and finding scholarships for any school, not just UH-Maui College,” added Stevenson. “It’s a great, free resource for our community.”

EOC is a federally funded college admissions program that helps Maui County adults and college-ready high school seniors get into college on Maui or elsewhere. Services are free and include college admissions advising and help finding money for college through federal financial aid and scholarships.
