Kilgore, TX — Kilgore College will offer classes at KC—Longview this spring geared toward working adults.
The classes, called QUEST classes, give students an opportunity to earn 12 hours of college credit in only 16 weeks.
QUEST, which stands for, "Quick Education for a Successful Tomorrow," will give students the needed education to succeed in a career or enter a bachelor’s degree program.
“Many adults who want to go back to college find it discouraging. They can only take a course here or there, and they have to get time off from work to attend day classes,” said Frank Mosley, Instructional Student Support Director “Every QUEST class is very affordable and offered in the evening, making it a perfect fit for working adults.”
QUEST classes are usually offered in a hybrid format, with one-half of the class online and one-half in a traditional classroom setting with the instructor.
Offered on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6 to 8:50 p.m., QUEST classes provide the Texas Core Curriculum which is guaranteed to transfer to any public university in Texas.
To participate in QUEST classes, students must meet all prerequisites for the courses and have access to Internet access.

The first day of classes at KC is Jan. 14.
