The College of Applied Science and Technology (CAST) serves many populations and offers a wide variety of educational and training opportunities through its partnerships with other Northeast Ohio institutions. Here’s a sampling:
CAST and Stark State College
CAST has begun offering its new Bachelor’s Degree in Organizational Supervision at Stark State College in North Canton. The program is designed for students with either an associate degree or a significant number of credit hours, enabling them to gain additional skills and advance professionally within their chosen field.
Barberton High School Partnership
CAST and Stark State College have also partnered to offer classes for credit to Barberton residents to get them started on their college degrees. Students are offered affordable tuition and small class sizes so the maximum amount of attention can be provided to each student.
Lorain County Community College University Partnership
Students can earn a bachelor’s degree focused on networking technologies in business and organizational environments through this 3+1 program. Students can complete three years of coursework with LCCC courses and earn a two-year degree in networking, then complete the last year of coursework on the LCCC campus with instruction by The University of Akron.
Akron Early College High School
This new approach to high school is the result of a partnership between CAST and Akron Public Schools. It enables students to earn a high school diploma and an associate degree at the same time. Classes are taught on campus by a combination of high school teachers and college professors. The program is geared toward first-generation college applicants who have not traditionally sought higher education. Learn more.
