The Ohio Hi-Point Nancy J. Knight School of Nursing has one more group of students this summer, and then completes the transition into the partnership with Clark State. Classes will be offered through Clark State, but still take place on the Bellefontaine campus. The partnership allows students to earn college credit, while paying a lower tuition rate.
The Adult Basic and Literacy Education and GED program will complete the transition to Clark State at the end of June. To find ABLE class start dates and testing dates, visit ClarkState.edu.
