COTC sets Open House for high school students

NEWARK — Central Ohio Technical College (COTC) is hosting an open house for the college’s Post-Secondary and Concurrent Enrollment Options Programs on Thursday, February 25, at 6 p.m., in the John Gilbert Reese Center, room 110. The open house is available to high school students entering 9th through 11th grade next year; parents and students are encouraged to attend. Call 740.366.9209 by February 19 to RSVP or for more information.

Post-Secondary Enrollment allows high school students to enroll in college courses at no cost to them. Students can earn both high school and college credit. To be eligible, students must notify their school district by March 30 of their intent to participate in the program for the following year.

Concurrent Enrollment allows high school students to enroll in college courses at one-half the cost of regular tuition as well as the cost of textbooks. This session will cover the risks and benefits of participating in the programs, COTC admissions requirements, as well as allow the student to complete the Intent to Participate Form in time for the March 30 deadline. Both programs require students to meet minimum admissions requirements.
