College-NOW (Ashland University)

Program Information

In cooperation with Ashland University and North Central State College, College-NOW offers qualified students a no-cost opportunity to delve into the world of business and finance as they acquire fundamental business skills and an understanding of how different business functions connect with the complex global economy.   Students will spend their school day on the Ashland University campus as they are also enrolled in general education classes.  On completion of all requirements, College-NOW students will end their senior year with both a high school diploma and an Associate of Arts Degree in Business Administration from North Central State College.  (Students enrolling in this program must meet specific grade, attendance, and ACT/ACCUPLACER score requirements along with positive recommendations from their associate high school personnel.)
