Its 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 18 to August 2, Summer Session I from May 18 to June 21, and Summer Session II from June 22 to August 2.
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 classes are for three credit hours, and many are offered in the general education subjects that are required for associate and bachelor degrees. 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, are held on campus.
May 4 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 $147 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.
