ACTC has dual credit programs
High school students have the opportunity to earn college credit in both general education and career and technical education courses at Ashland Community and Technical College through the dual credit program.
ACTC recently partnered with four technology centers to offer dual credit in technical courses: Russell Area Technology Center, Greenup Area Technology Center, Boyd County Career and Technical Center, and Carter County Career and Technical Center.
ACTC also has an early college agreement with Holy Family.
ACTC partners with 11 local school districts to offer dual credit courses: Ashland Independent, Boyd County, Carter County, Carter Christian Academy, Elliott County, Fairview Independent, Greenup County, Lawrence County, Raceland-Worthington Independent, Russell Independent and Rose Hill Christian.
“ACTC works on building strong relationships with our partner school districts, and dual credit is a key part of these relationships. We hope to see many of these students on our campus as credential seeking students after high school graduation,” Vicki McGinnis, dual credit coordinator, said. “There are many ACTC scholarship opportunities for students after high school graduation. Students who earn dual credit in high school and then finish a degree with us could potentially come out owing little or no money for tuition, depending on their program.”
Dual credit students have two types of scholarships from the state they can use to pay for courses — dual credit scholarships and Work Ready dual credit scholarships.
