JONESBORO — Clayton State University officials are planning an informational open house for those interested in returning to school to complete their degrees.

Spokesman John Shiffert said the meeting is for those whose friends, relatives, co-workers or they themselves could benefit from completing their college degree or have some college credits but no degree.

Residents with some undergraduate college credits, but do not hold a college degree, are invited to attend the Clayton State Degree Completion Open House on June 3. It is set between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m., in room 101 of the Harry S. Downs Center, 2000 Clayton State Blvd. in Morrow.

Interested parties are invited to drop in anytime during the three-hour open house, which is designed to provide information and on-site services to residents in the local community who have already earned college credit and are now ready to finish their college degree.

Clayton State representatives will be available from recruitment and admissions, financial aid, the Registrar’s Office, resting center, the Center for Academic Success, academic advising, career services and the Veterans Resource Center.
