Ohio University’s Cambridge and Pickerington Centers announce changes for summer 2016 and beyond


Two of Ohio University’s regional campus centers, the Cambridge Center and the Pickerington Center, recently announced separate changes that will be taking place at their locations.

Neither regional campus location will experience a reduction in staff as a result of these changes.

Ohio University Cambridge Center to focus on Applied Management degree in partnership with Zane State College

In an effort better to serve students and to increase efficiency and accessibility in higher education, the Ohio University Cambridge Center will be relocating its Cambridge classes beginning Fall Semester 2016. The University will continue serving the residents of Guernsey and surrounding counties by offering classes at two distance learning equipped classrooms within Zane State College’s Willett Pratt Training Center.

The move is a continuation of Zane State College and Ohio University’s partnership and an effort to pave the way to more affordable and accessible degrees for area residents. Driven by this shared goal, the Ohio University Cambridge Center will focus on delivering the Bachelor of Science in Applied Management (BSAM) program. The BSAM program is designed to cater to the needs of students who want to continue their education after earning an associate degree.

Moving classes from the Glenn Highway location to the Cambridge Campus of Zane State College provides current students with an easy transition to continue their education. Ohio University is in the process of exploring options for the future of the Glenn Highway facility, while striving to meet the community’s needs for affordable higher education options for those who desire to earn a bachelor’s degree.

Ohio University and Zane State College have an established articulation agreement in place for the BSAM program that facilitates the transfer of credits and streamlines students’ transition into the bachelor’s degree program. The BSAM major provides students with management knowledge, skills and values for success in today’s complex enterprises. The program is primarily intended for students who have completed a two-year degree program (or equivalent credit hours) and prepares graduates to succeed in a management career.

Housing the BSAM program in the Willett Pratt Training Center contributes to the creation of a centralized education hub for Cambridge students seeking a college degree. The more specifically-aligned course offerings will begin in the Willett Pratt Center this fall and registration is now open.

Ohio University Pickerington Center to reduce course offerings for first 2016 summer session

Ohio University’s Pickerington Center will be reducing its 2016 summer session operational hours due to low summer enrollment numbers. The Center will transition first session students and necessary staff to the Lancaster Campus to continue to provide accessible and affordable education for the students of central Ohio.

The second summer session at the Pickerington Center, currently scheduled to begin June 27, will follow a Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday class schedule in an effort to provide optimal access for students while maintaining the Center’s commitment to operational efficiency.

Additional information and updated scheduling will be posted to Ohio University’s Pickerington Center website at www.ohio.edu/pickerington.
