ACTC Offers Three Summer Sessions
It’s time to apply for summer classes at Ashland Community and Technical College. ACTC offers three choices for summer classes: a full summer term from May 15 to July 30, Summer Session I from May 15 to June 18, and Summer Session II from June 26 to July 30.
Summer Sessions offer advantages to new and continuing students alike. New students can get a head start on fall, continuing students can complete their college program in a shorter time, and working adults can take classes for job advancement.
Most summer courses are online, making it easier to fit college into vacation schedules. Courses where hands-on learning is needed, such as science labs and math courses, are held on campus. Some communications, history and algebra classes are also offered on campus.
Students can take classes in the general education subjects that are required for associate and bachelor degrees. These heritage/ humanities, communications, math, natural science and social / behavioral science courses give students a head start on a college credential and may be transferred to four year colleges and universities.
Students can also take summer courses for a specific program such as Criminal justice, Computer Aided Drafting & Design, Interdisciplinary Early Childhood Education, Medical Information Technology and Welding.
May 1 is the application deadline for both Summer I and the Full Summer term, and June 8 is the application deadline for Summer II. Admission forms and class schedules are on the web at: ashland.kctcs.edu. For more information, call the Admissions Office, 606-326-2114.
In-state Kentucky tuition for summer classes is $156 per credit hour, and residents of neighboring Ohio and West Virginia counties qualify for in-state tuition.
Financial Aid is available for summer classes. After filling out the ACTC admissions form, new students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available online at: www.fasfa.gov.
For help with the FAFSA or to pre-determine your eligibility for a Federal Pell Grant or other aid, contact the Office of Financial Aid, 1-855-246-2282.
