Hoverter Course in the Humanities
This liberal arts bridging course provides access to higher education for those whose circumstances have prevented them from considering a college education. The Hoverter Course in the Humanities provides tuition-free, collegiate instruction for credit to economically and educationally underserved individuals, 18 years of age and older, who are either high school graduates or GED recipients. The hope is that a humanities-based exposure to higher education will equip students with basic liberal arts skills and encourage them to aspire to college study.
