ST. CLAIRSVILLE, Ohio (May 1, 2007) -- Current high school seniors, juniors and sophomores in the top 20 percent of their class may be eligible to take one tuition-free freshman-level college course through the Summer Scholar Program at Ohio University's Eastern Campus.
Upon successful completion of the course, each scholar will earn Ohio University credit which will count toward Ohio University graduation requirements or may be transferred to another institution.
The dates for the Summer Scholar Program are:
- First Summer Session: June 18 to July 21
- Second Summer Session: July 23 to Aug. 25
- Full Summer Session: June 18 to Aug. 25
"This is a great opportunity for high school students to begin their college careers early. This is the chance to see what college is like," says Jennifer Kellner, recruitment coordinator at Ohio University-Eastern. "The variety of courses and times available leave students with the option of working a summer job or taking a vacation while increasing their chances of success in the future."
Students interested in applying for the Summer Scholar Program may get nomination forms and an application from their guidance counselor or by using the contact information listed below. Scholars wishing to enroll in additional courses for which they meet the requirements may do so at the current tuition rate.
