UA Wayne College to host College Credit Plus Info Night

02/08/2021

The University of Akron (UA) Wayne College is hosting a virtual College Credit Plus (CCP) Information Night for students entering grades 7-12 and their parents, to learn how to earn both college and high school credits at the same time for free. The virtual event is scheduled for Monday, March 8 at 6 pm.

The purpose of the program is to provide current 7-12 grade students the opportunity to reduce their higher education costs by earning college credit in high school. Classes, including books, are offered free of charge for qualifying students.

Not only does the program offer a savings to the students, it also gives them the opportunity to get a taste for college classes and to be able to take classes that might not be offered in their high schools. “The College Credit Plus Info Night at UA Wayne College provides families with an excellent opportunity to learn more about this program from the College’s perspective,” said Jim Lawrence, academic advisor. “Most students and their families have already had an opportunity to attend their home school’s information night, so this event provides them with a complete view of the program from both perspectives.”

The CCP Information Night will include an overview of the program, preferred admissions requirements, how to apply and the opportunity to hear from CCP students. “One particularly popular part of the evening has traditionally been the panel discussion with College Credit Plus students, who do an excellent job of bringing the program to life for prospective students,” continued Lawrence.
