OCU Starts Classes in Hillsboro and Washington Court House

Dr. Tim Eades, OCU Assistant Provost and Vice President

This fall, Ohio Christian University started two new cohorts of students at the Southern State Community College locations in Washington Court House and Hillsboro.  OCU signed a partnership and articulation agreement with SSCC in 2009, and classes began that next year.  Students completing an associate degree at Southern State can continue on in a bachelor’s degree program with Ohio Christian University.  This marks the first time ever for OCU to hold classes at the SSCC main campus in Hillsboro and continues the partnership with classes meeting at the Washington Court House location of SSCC.

Dr. Karen Davis, Dean of Instructional Operations for Southern State Community College stated, “I am excited about Ohio Christian University’s new bachelor’s degrees in business and psychology on our Central Campus in Hillsboro.  SSCC looks forward to expanding offerings with OCU and providing more opportunities for residents of our five county service area.”

“OCU deeply appreciates the partnership of SSCC and its leadership,” said Dr. Tim Eades, OCU Assistant Provost and Vice President.  “Our passion is to provide working adults, regardless of age, a convenient and affordable pathway to finish their education and improve their life and career.”
