BSCC Career Pathways Academy submission deadline tomorrow

Posted

The deadline to apply for Bevill State Community College’s Career Pathways Academy is tomorrow.

Career Pathways Academy is accepting applications for current sophomores in Fayette, Walker, Winston and north Tuscaloosa counties to be exposed to jobs in an industry setting during their junior and senior years.

Students will have an opportunity to participate in a technical training program and earn high school and college credit. Participants can also choose to earn a short-term certificate in automated manufacturing and a short-term certificate to be an industrial plant technician.

The competitive program is free for those accepted, but students will be responsible for transportation.

Sophomores accepted into the academy will continue the Career Pathways journey through their senior year, and will be able to earn up to 22 credit hours by graduation. Before students enter their junior year, they will attend a robotics program during the summer, and prior to entering their senior year, students will tour manufacturing plants through the state.

To be eligible for the academy, students must have a 3.0 GPA, complete an application with references and a resume and be interviewed by industry representatives and Bevill State at a later date.

Applications can be found at www.bscc.edu/community-resources/bscc-career-pathways-academy. For more information, contact Maurice Ingle of Bevill State at (800) 648-3271, ext. 5214.
