High school juniors can earn free college credit and get an early taste of campus life this summer at Herzing University-Toledo, which is offering a free technology course starting the week of Monday, July 8, 2013.
The Herzing University Transitions program is designed to help high school seniors-to-be earn college credits while attending high school. Interested students may attend Herzing University-Toledo to take one course tuition-free.
The Information Systems 121 course will run Tuesday through Thursday mornings, covering Internet-related topics and computer networking. Students will build their own website, while learning communications protocols and programming languages, such as HTML, C++, and others. A video game development course is planned for the fall semester.
“At Herzing University, we are committed to helping develop our local community’s educational base in the career-focused sector,” said Greg Guzmán, Toledo campus president. “The intent of the free summer course is to help get talented students interested in an in-demand career track and meet our local workforce’s growing need for college graduates in the field of information technology. Free college credit earned now also can reduce the cost of higher education later.”
Interested students and/or their parents can call 419.776.0300 or stop by the Herzing University-Toledo campus, 5212 Hill Ave., to obtain more information or to register for the course.
