What is Tech Prep?
Ohio College Tech Prep is a combination of 37 colleges and universities working with 91 Career Technical Planning Districts to insure a growing number of FREE opportunities for students to seamlessly transfer skills and credits from secondary schools and adult education into higher education opportunities, and jobs. Programs such as College Credit Plus and Career-Technical Credit Transfer provide avenues for students to earn college credit while still in high school, and many secondary schools have "Bilateral Agreements" with colleges and universities for students to earn additional specialized credit. Working with faculty, administrators, and business partners, we prepare successful graduates for successful careers and learning opportunities that match their interests, skill sets, and needs of the community. We open doors for students of all ages!
At Washington State Community College
Serving mainly Washington, Meigs, and Morgan Counties, Tech Prep at WSCC provides a connection between the local Career Technical Education programs and post-secondary opportunities. This involves articulation agreements into exciting degree programs, as well as certification and apprenticeship options. Built by local business needs, our programs are designed to build on obtained skills, and provide graduates with the necessary tools to enter the local economy as a valuable employee and citizen, or to pursue further education by transferring credits to a 4-year degree program.
To encourage Career Technical Students, Washington State offers a myriad of high school articulation options, as well as Tech Prep Scholarships to encourage local students to pursue their educational and career dreams!
Southeast Regional Center
Washington State Community College also serves as the "hub" of the SE Region of Ohio College Tech Prep. Our regional partners work closely together to provide unique opportunities close to home, and develop the pathways for student success here in the rural corner of Ohio. The SE Ohio Regional Website provides helpful information, including a searchable database that allows students to plan their future education and job prospects. We also provide event calendars, training and workshop information, and upcoming student organization conferences.
The Regional Center also provides training opportunities for teachers and administrators, to assist in building quality career pathways for students.
