Design for Success Logo

Design for Success is an effort to increase the number of Central Maine adult students starting and finishing college degree and certificate programs.
Funded through a Maine College Access Fund grant and administered by the Finance Authority of Maine, Design for Success is part of a federal program to increase the numbers getting a postsecondary education. The Kennebec Valley Consortium Adult Education programs are collaborating to increase the number of students completing the College Transitions and Aspirations programs. Because financial support is critical to staying in college, we also guide students in applying for federal grants and loans via the FAFSA, a federal financial aid application. Our counselors can help you overcome obstacles to attaining your higher education goals.
