ORRVILLE The University of Akron Wayne College Campus is hosting a College Credit Plus (CCP) 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. Taking place in the Student Life Building, the event is scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 28.
The purpose of CCP is to provide 7-12 grade students the opportunity to reduce their higher education costs by earning college credit in high school, according to a news release. Classes, including books, are offered free of charge for qualifying students. Not only does CCP offer a savings to the students, but it also gives them the opportunity to get a taste for college classes and take courses that might not be offered in their high schools.
Located at 1901 Smucker Road in Orrville, the CCP Information Night will include a presentation reviewing admissions requirements, a campus tour, and the opportunity to hear from current CCP students. To RSVP, visit wayne.uakron.edu.
