All CCCTC Adult Education students must have completed secondary education (high school or equivalent)
prior to admission to the CCCTC Adult Education Full Time Programs and class size is limited... Completion
of required paperwork and document submission determines the date of enrollment. Career Students are
required to attend a scheduled school tour and orientation and meet the following program prerequisites prior
to beginning class:
1. Achieve the required G.E. (grade equivalent) in basic skills tests covering math, reading, and
2. Provide proof of a High School Diploma or GED Transcript
3. Complete any other program prerequisites as stated in the course admission outlines.
If the US DOE or the school questions the validity of the high schools’ credentials, the institution will first
check the “Unacceptable Proof of Graduation” list. If the high school is on that list it will be judged as
unacceptable. If it is not on that list but the institution still questions the validity of the high school credential
we will ask for a transcript from the high school showing classes completed and passed. If CCCTC is still not
satisfied as to the validity of the credential, we may contact the states’ Department of Education in which the
school is located to ascertain if the high school is approved by the state. The final determination on the validity of high school credentials rests solely with the Adult Education Director of the Columbiana County Career and Technical Center.
The Columbiana County Career & Technical Center Adult Education Department maintains an “open admission” policy that states any person 18 years or older who 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. Every full-time registered student is required by the Ohio Department of Higher Education 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. Some programs are considered selective admission and may have additional entrance benchmarks and/or admission requirements,
All students are required to:
1. Attend a scheduled orientation and receive a packet containing program information, sources of financial assistance and information about the pre-admission requirements.
2. Complete and pass the required Workkeys entrance assessment at the scores level needed for your particular program choice.
3. Meet with the financial aid coordinator and receive a cost of attendance.
4. Arrange for a high school transcript to be forwarded to the school or give evidence of graduation from high school or GED by presenting a diploma/certificate. The high school diploma validity will be evaluated based on the FAFSA information, acceptable documentation submitted and/or inquiries to the State as needed.
5. Submit all completed forms, including the Registration form and any required financial arrangement documents. Payment of payments arrangements must be in place by the first day of classes.
6. Registration is complete only when all required forms and documents have been completed and turned in to the office along with any required down payment or first payment for the program.
Applicants without a high school diploma or GED test certificate are encouraged to participate in ASPIRE and/or GED test preparation or high school credit program. Upon successful completion of the GED test certification, applicants are encouraged to re-apply.
The completed file of each applicant will be reviewed. Applicants qualified for the program of choice will be granted admission and will be placed on the list for admission to the next available class according to the date the file is completed. Falsification of any student information submitted will be grounds for student termination.
CCCTC is committed to providing support needed for equal access and equal educational opportunity for each student. If a student has a documented disability that could affect his/her pursuit of an education, he/she may receive appropriate accommodations. A reasonable accommodation means any reasonable modification of the institute’s rules, policies or practices, environmental adjustments (such as the removal of architectural or communicative barriers) or auxiliary aids and services. An accommodation is not reasonable if it would result in an undue financial or administrative burden or hardship; require a fundamental alteration to the program, service or activity; violate accreditation requirements; or require the waiver of essential program or licensing requirements
Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 prohibits any government body, including CCCTC Adult education, from denying any qualified individual with a disability an equal opportunity to participate in any program, service or activity offered. In addition an institution must provide reasonable accommodations, when necessary, to allow an individual with a disability the opportunity to participate in the institution’s educational programs, service and/or activity.
In addition to providing accommodations CCCTC may deny requested accommodations if providing it would impose an undue financial and administrative burden on CCCTC Adult Education or fundamentally alter the nature of our operations. CCCTC is a small rural adult education facility offering certification program and diploma programs. CCCTC does not have a standalone student accessibility services office, and students requesting accommodations will work with the Adult Education Director to ensure any agreed upon plans are followed. Requests for reasonable accommodations must be handled on an individualized basis.
If we deny the any request, we will provide you with a letter stating all of the reasons for our denial.
1. If we believe that the requested accommodation poses an undue financial and administrative burden or a fundamental alteration to the nature of CCCTC operations, we will schedule a meeting at a mutually convenient time to discuss possible alternative accommodations that would not impose such a burden or result in a fundamental alteration. CCCTC will ask you to accept an alternative accommodation, only if you agree, it meets your disability-related needs.
We recognize that an individual with a disability is generally in the best position to know whether or not a particular accommodation will be effective in meeting his or her needs.
2. If agreement on an alternative accommodation is not reached, we will send you a letter providing CCCTCs decision on your requested accommodation and a detailed explanation of our reasons for a denial or decision to grant an alternative accommodation.
In providing in academic adjustment, CCCTC is not required to lower or effect substantial modifications to essential requirements. For example, although your school may be required to provide extended testing time, it is not required to change the substantive content of the test. In addition, your postsecondary school does not have to make modifications that would fundamentally alter the nature of a service, program or activity or would result in undue financial or administrative burdens. CCCTC does not have to provide personal attendants, individually prescribed devices, readers for personal use or study, or other devices or services of a personal nature, such as tutoring or typing.
The accommodation process should be an interactive process which provides for give-and-take between the institution and the student. However, remember that, while the student’s preference should be considered, the institution has the ultimate discretion to determine what accommodation will be provided. The institution does not have to choose the best accommodation, but rather the accommodation that is sufficient to effectively meet the program-related needs of the student.
All records concerning student disabilities are protected by the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). A student’s disability documentation and records of accommodations are kept completely separate from his/her academic records and under normal circumstances are not shared with any persons outside of CCCTC (exceptions usually involve danger to yourself or another person or compliance with court orders). Disability recorders do not follow a student when he/she transfers to another institution, nor are records shared with employers.
CCCTC Adult Education is centrally located and easily accessible on State Route 45 in Lisbon, Ohio. The school earned the designation of Adult Full Service Center from the Ohio Department of Education in 1987. The Center is a multi- purpose facility located at 9364 State Route 45. CCCTC provides educational opportunities for employment of individuals, and promotes education as the crucial link between the needs of community employers and area adults.
