UT, TPS encourage early college class signup; Credits can add up to associate degree


Hundreds of Toledo students are collecting their first college credits while still walking through high school hallways. The University of Toledo and Toledo Public Schools want to put more pupils in that prime position, and they are working to ensure TPS students who enroll in UT courses are choosing classes that add up to an associate of arts degree. Leaders of the two institutions are scheduled to announce today a new push to increase the number of TPS students taking college courses through the statewide College Credit Plus program, and to make sure those students are carefully selecting those courses. “We want to be very strategic about what they are taking and making sure that it transfers to other colleges or that it fits in with a degree here,” said Barbara Kopp Miller, UT’s associate provost for online education.
