ORRVILLE The University of Akron Wayne College is hosting a College Credit Plus 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 event is at 6 p.m. Dec. 9 in the Student Life Building, 1901 Smucker Road, Orrville.
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, according to a news release.
The CCP Information Night will include a campus tour, admissions requirements and the opportunity to hear from current CCP students. To RSVP, visit wayne.uakron.edu/collegecreditplus. Light refreshments will be available.
