Wellington (P.E.I.) - January 31, 2014 – Collège de l'Île invites prospective students to register to its contest by March 15 for a chance to win a $2,000 credit toward tuition for full-time programs starting in September.

According to the Collège's President, Donald DesRoches, "This contest will allow a student to be able to begin training for a career while enjoying substantial financial support. What an great opportunity!" As the costs associated with post-secondary education increase, a credit equivalent to almost half of tuition represents an opportunity for significant savings.

In September 2014, Collège de l'Île plans to offer the following full-time programs: Human Services, Youth Worker, Resident Care Worker, Bilingual Administrative Assistant, Accounting Clerk, Welder, and Early Childhood Educator. The registration deadline, as well as the contest deadline is March 15. To register, students must visit the Collège de l'Île Facebook page (www.facebook.com/CollegeAcadieIPE), click on the " Participez pour courir la chance de gagner 2000$ envers vos frais de scolarité! " button and fill out the registration form. The registration form can also be downloaded from the Collège's website at www.collegedelile.ca. All contest rules are available on the Collège's Facebook page and website.

The programs offered at Collège de l'Île are in areas where Island employers are looking for qualified employees and represent one of the best investments to improve the quality of life in the long term.

Students interested in enrolling in one of the programs of the Collège for September can do so directly on the new website at the www.collegedelile.ca.
