On May 15, College of the Mainland, in partnership with ABC-13 and eight other community colleges, is hosting a one-day community college registration drive and live chat.

Join the Web chat on the ABC-13 website (http://abc13.com/uncategorized/your-future-starts-now/687622/ ) May 15 from 4-7 p.m. to have experts answer your questions on college, financial aid, credit transfer and more. Also, you can ask your question on Twitter with the hashtag #collegenow.

“Your Future Starts Now!” targets graduating seniors who are wondering what they'll do next. The drive will also offer assistance for adults looking to make a change in their lives.

Together, the nine public community colleges of the Gulf Coast Consortium enroll more than 150,000 students in credit courses and 60,000 students in noncredit continuing education and workforce courses.

COM has many one and two-year certifications that can lead to full-time employment or launch a student toward earning a bachelor’s degree.
