ST. CLAIRSVILLE – Students currently in grades 6-11 and their parents are invited to attend College Credit Plus Information Nights at Ohio University Eastern Campus on Wednesday, Feb. 6 and Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 6 p.m. in the Shannon Hall Theater. Those interested in participating only need to attend one of the two Information Nights.
College Credit Plus is a unique opportunity for qualified students to earn college credits prior to their graduation from high school. All tuition and textbook costs are free. In addition, the college credits earned also count toward high school graduation requirements and are designed to transfer to most public universities in Ohio.
"College Credit Plus Information Night is a great opportunity for prospective students and their parents to learn more about the program, the application process, and expectations of the program," said Jay Morris, coordinator of College Credit Plus at Ohio University Eastern. "The sessions will include a question and answer session with OUE faculty, administrators and current students in the program, who will share their experiences."
According to Morris, the program benefits many local students each year. One recent success story is Thad Indermuhle of River High School. "College Credit Plus has allowed me to complete two full years of college by my high school graduation," he said. "More than this though, the environment at Ohio University Eastern has provided a place for education, discussion, and growth. I have gained so much, both personally and in pursuit of my career."
Interested participants are encouraged to RSVP by calling 740-699-2536 or emailing Morris at email@example.com. Participants may also register online at www.ohio.edu/eastern by clicking on the "College Credit Plus Information Night" button on the right side.
Ohio University is conveniently located off I70 exit 213, just minutes from the Ohio Valley Plaza in St. Clairsville.
