Earn Free College Credit While Still in High School

01/26/2016

The University of Akron Wayne College is hosting a College Credit Plus Information Night Monday, March 14 at 6 p.m. in the Student Life Building. The campus is located at 1901 Smucker Rd. in Orrville. The event is free and open to students and their families.

College Credit Plus (CCP) is formerly known as Post-Secondary Enrollment Options Program (PSEOP) and allows students grades 7-12 to earn college and high school credits at the same time, free of charge, including tuition and books. 

The CCP program was created by the Ohio legislature to help students get ahead academically and potentially save money by earning a degree faster. Families are invited to tour the campus, meet current CCP students, and learn if the program is right for them.

"A small campus like Wayne offers the personal attention students need to develop the college-ready skills needed to be successful," said Traci Carmony, admissions counselor, Wayne College. "We also offer classes not available in area high schools which gives students an opportunity to explore a wider range of interests. Credits earned will count toward high school graduation and ultimately a college degree. It's a win-win."
