Antonelli Students Offered Local College’s Help

POTTSTOWN PA – To assist Antonelli Medical and Professional Institute students affected by this week’s events at the school, Montgomery County Community College reported Friday (Aug. 25, 2017) it would hold four special information sessions about programs and opportunities it offers.

Sessions will be held Monday (Aug. 28) at 11:30 a.m., Tuesday (Aug. 29) at 6 p.m., Sept. 7 (Thursday) at 6 p.m., and Sept. 8 (Friday) at 11:30 p.m., all at the college’s Pottstown campus, 101 College Dr., in South Hall Room 121, it said. Representatives from MCCC’s academic advising, financial aid, and admissions departments will be available to answer questions and provide direction.

Antonelli, a private technical school located in Lower Pottsgrove, announced Friday that the U.S. Department of Education had denied its the ability to grant federal financial aid. Antonelli said it does not expect to begin any new classes or programs, and will allow only students in their final modules to complete classes or externships. Remaining enrollees are learning about options to complete their training at other institutions.

The college said its accredited medical assisting and medical office assistant programs could align with programs offered by Antonelli. To earn credits for courses taken at Antonelli, students may take challenge exams or participate in prior learning assessment. Students still have time to enroll this fall in MCCC’s 10-week courses that begin Sept. 27.

Students unable to attend any sessions, but who would like to be contacted about the college’s programs, should complete an online form here. For more details about the information sessions, For more information, call Kathleen Schreiner, MCCC director of medical office professions, at 610-718-1812 or e-mail her at kschreiner@mc3.edu.
