The Columbiana County Career & Technical Center maintains an “open admission” policy that states any person 18 years or older that can provide physical proof of a high school diploma or GED certificate issued by the appropriate state education agency may enroll in an adult education program or course. Upon payment of the required fees, students will be admitted on a first come, first serve basis as long as there is space available. Every registered student is required by the Ohio Board of Regents and the Columbiana County Career and Technical Center Board of Education to sit for a WorkKeys entrance assessment to validate the student’s current level and appropriate placement for his/her training program of choice. Such scores are used for advisement regarding selected program and as an indicator for probable success in the program. All students must score a minimum of 3 in all three assessment content areas or attend remediation and re-test prior to starting a program.
The Practical Nurse program has additional entrance benchmarks and/or admission requirements. Please see Practical Nurse Handbook for the program selective admission policy.
Applicants without a high school diploma or GED test certificate are encouraged to participate in ABLE and/or GED test preparation or high school credit program. Upon successful completion of the GED test certification, applicants are encouraged to re-apply.
