Early College Initiatives

In 2004 FIPSE funded a program at North Central State College in Mansfield, Ohio to start high school students into an early college program in engineering technology. We have six years of experience in this program and good data gathered on our graduates. The FIPSE money was done in 2007 but we are self-sustaining through Ohio's student funding. Our students are graduating from college and high school in the same week. We have students working with the associate degree, moving onto 4 yr programs and working with the associate degree while their employers are paying four the 4 yr degree. I thought there might be some out their who have heard of College-Now and would like to see how we have done this. Bob Brownson Co-Director of College_now
