Local media covers UC's newest Early IT program

UC, Akron Public Schools and Stark State sign partnership to create Early IT program

Akron high school students eager to begin careers in information technology can now get a head start before they graduate high school, thanks to an agreement formalized last month between the University of Cincinnati, Stark State College and Akron Public Schools.

The partnership provides students at Akron’s Kenmore-Garfield High School with a unique opportunity to complete up to 43 hours of college credit while in high school. Students who complete their freshmen year of the information technology bachelor’s degree program while in high school will automatically be accepted to UC as sophomore IT majors and immediately be eligible for co-op placement.

The story was covered by both the Akron Beacon Journal and the Cincinnati Enquirer. Read more details about the program here.
