Waubonsee Community College hosted Latine in STEM, presented by Dra. Maldonado: a conversation about how Latine people negotiate identities in the STEM world, in October of 2022.


The Aurora Public Library District Foundation expresses its gratitude to Waubonsee Community College for its sponsorship of the library.  Here is an update about opportunities for Latine students at Waubonsee.

Everyone in our community deserves access to high-quality higher education and that’s why Waubonsee Community College is proud to offer affordable tuition, flexible payment options, technological and other academic support, career programs and planning, and much more.

Plus, with MyChoice, students can choose from one of five learning modalities to learn when, where, and how they prefer.

Waubonsee’s Latinx Resource Center is a one-stop shop to support Latinx students and families in the City of Aurora and across the greater Fox Valley area. Our new Colegio de Empoderamiento enriches the knowledge of families and parents with educational values and teachings on the importance of higher education.

We invite families to join us at one of these upcoming sessions:  February 25, March 25, or April 29. In addition, our Latinx Summer Institute helps Latinx students learn everything they need to achieve college success.

By attending this five-day program, held from Aug 14-18, 2023, students will find a safe community, learn what to expect while attending college, discover how to choose a career path and get connected to important resources like how to pay for college. To learn more and register for an upcoming session, visit waubonsee.edu/lrc.

And if you or someone you know is looking to improve their English speaking, reading, and writing skills or interested in earning an Illinois State High School Diploma at no cost, look no further. Our Adult Education Department offers these two courses in a variety of formats such as face- to-face and online, all free to the community. Learn more details at waubonsee.edu/AdultEd.

We believe that Waubonsee should be your first choice for education within our community. Take the first step to make this year count towards your goals. Get registered, enrolled, and ready for class. Learn more and apply at waubonsee.edu/enroll.
