The University of Akron is offering an exciting new program called ZipStart at the Wayne College Campus. ZipStart, offered in the summer 2014 semester, is a program which allows a qualified student the opportunity to begin their college experience at a special rate. Through the ZipStart program a student can take one summer course at the rate of $500 or two summer courses at the rate of $1000. It does not matter how many credit hours are in the course. This offers substantial savings for new students who take advantage of the program.

To participate in the program, an interested person must submit an application for admission and be admitted as a new student to Wayne College or the Akron campus for the fall 2014 semester. Only students who are first time students to college qualify for the ZipStart program. The student must attend the new student orientation and register for courses in both the summer and fall semesters. Only general education courses taken during the summer semester qualify for the ZipStart program.

If you know anyone who may be interested in the ZipStart program, please have them contact Wayne College at 330-684-8900.
