Do you want to start college or a professional program at LWTech, but you’re not sure you’re ready?
Open Doors provides preparation and support for students who may not want to immediately jump into college classes. The first part of that support is a Foundation quarter, where students take classes to specifically prepare them for college. From that quarter on, students have a dedicated academic advisor to give individualized support and help navigate college systems.
