Early College

Owensboro Community & Technical College’s Early College program is ideal for students who like a challenge. This is a collaborative partnership with area high schools and OCTC.

Early College students attend classes on campus at OCTC full-time during their junior and senior years of high school. Students may still participate in extra curricular activities at their high school. Students may graduate simultaneously with a high school diploma and an associate’s degree.

The tuition is covered through scholarships, self-pay, or experimental Pell grants. Students are responsible for transportation, books and supplies.

Students will select an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree plan based on transfer interest or career choice.

For more information or to see if Early College is the right fit for you contact your high school counselor or Nikki Wimpelberg, OCTC Early College Coordinator, nikki.wimpelberg@kctcs.edu or call 270.686.4596.
