High School Students Can Earn College Credit at UA Wayne College


Students can get a jumpstart on college by enrolling in the Postsecondary Enrollment Options Program (PSEOP) at The University of Akron Wayne College. PSEOP information nights will be held on Monday, Feb. 17 at 6:30 p.m. at Wayne College, 1901 Smucker Road, Orrville and on Tuesday, Feb. 18 at 6:30 at the College’s Holmes Campus, 88-B E. Jackson St., Millersburg.

PSEOP was created in 1989 by the State of Ohio to allow qualified high school students to enroll in a college or university and receive both high school and college credit. Tuition, textbooks, materials and fees related to the coursework are covered by the program.

Information about Wayne College, application procedures, and a tour of the campus will be available. Former and current PSEOP students will be on hand to answer questions and explain how PSEOP works for them.

Former PSEOP student Allie Schwartz, now a junior at The University of Akron, said, “Postsecondary was a great experience. I was able to adjust to a college environment while I was still in high school and finish most of my college general education requirements. I graduated from high school as a college sophomore at no cost and will finish my bachelor’s degree a year early.”

No RSVP is necessary. For more information, please contact Sarah Jane Morrow, Wayne College admissions counselor, at 330-684-8912 or e-mail sjm34@uakron.edu or contact the Holmes County Higher Education Center at 330-674-2541.
