Malone University and Plain Local School District are collaborating on a dual enrollment program, in which high school students may earn college credit by taking college courses during their junior or senior year.
Malone University and the Plain Local School District are collaborating on a Post-Secondary Enrollment Options Program (PSEOP) in which students may earn college and high school credit during their junior and senior year while enrolled in high school. This type of dual enrollment program is a by-product of Ohio's ongoing initiative to encourage these educational partnerships to promote greater access to higher education through shared resources.
The highly focused program is a component of GlenOak High School's Health Sciences Academy Pathway, "Advancement to Nursing," designed to enable the successful student to enter a B.S. nursing program with advanced standing. Students will take a nursing course, as well as core support and science requirements. The first dual enrollment course offered this fall will be Introduction to Psychology, taught by Malone professor, David Entwistle, Psy.D. Anatomy and Physiology will be offered in the spring. Future courses will be taught by GlenOak and/or Malone faculty. All courses are transferable to any college or university and are designed to satisfy university requirements for the BSN nursing students.
