DUBLIN, GA - Eleven (11) students from West Laurens High School are making the most of their time in high school with Oconee Fall Line Technical College’s (OFTC) dual enrollment program – earning both high school and college credit at the same time. They are wearing their new "I Started College Early at OFTC" t-shirts provided by OFTC's Student Government Association.
“OFTC’s dual enrollment program is a great way for students interested in a career to give it a try,” said Robbie Hobbs, a High School Coordinator for OFTC. “And when they are done, they have a skill that is job ready. They can move into that career after high school, use their new skill for part-time work during college, or continue in the field toward an advanced degree or other credentials.”
Any high school students that are interested in the Dual Enrollment program at OFTC are encouraged to contact their high school guidance counselor or call Robbie Hobbs, OFTC’s High School Coordinator, at 478-274-7765 or at email@example.com.
Students may also visit www.OFTC.edu and follow the high school link to learn more about dual enrollment. Courses may be taken during school hours or in the evening. OFTC is taking dual enrollment applications NOW for eligible high school students for Spring and Fall Semesters 2014.
