If you are a brand new student who applies after November, or you just might be unsure if college is the right choice, a free Transition to College class is an option. You will earn two free college credits upon successful completion. The class is designed to help you begin college with ease and confidence. Students will receive guidance throughout the enrollment process, as well as complete admissions and financial aid applications, explore career options, and refresh basic skills such as math, English, and computer skills. Class starts the week of February 11.

ZSC is here to help you along the way, and we want you to reach out to us for help! Our social media sites are great resources for you to find out what's happening on campus, so check us out:
