QUEST, which stands for, "Quick Education for a Successful Tomorrow," is intended to give students the needed education to succeed in a career or enter a bachelor’s degree program.
“Many adults who want to go back to college find it discouraging. They can only take a course here or there, and they have to get time off from work to attend day classes,” said Frank Mosley, Instructional Student Support Director “Every QUEST class is very affordable and offered in the evening, making it a perfect fit for working adults.”
QUEST classes are usually offered in a hybrid format, with one-half of the class online and one-half in a traditional classroom setting with the instructor.
According to Mosley, students are given the opportunity to earn up to six college credits with QUEST in the first eight weeks and six college credits the second eight weeks of a traditional fall or spring semester.
Offered on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 to 8:50 p.m., QUEST classes provide the Texas Core Curriculum which is guaranteed to transfer to any public university in Texas.
To participate in QUEST classes, students must meet all prerequisites for the courses and have Internet access.
KC will hold registration on both the Longview and Kilgore campuses from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Jan. 12. The first day of class is Jan. 19.
