What You Should Know About Hocking’s New Bordering States’ Scholarship

by Tim Brunicardi on March 4, 2018

Are you a high school senior who's ready to move out on your own after graduation and would like to continue your education, but have no interest in attending a four-year college? Has your search for a good technical college in your area left you discouraged? Is the only thing holding you back from attending a two-year college in another state the prospect of you having to pay thousands of extra dollars in out-of-state-tuition?

If this sounds like you, then perhaps you should consider enrolling at Hocking College in Nelsonville, Ohio. Starting in Fall 2018, out-of-state students can take advantage of Hocking College’s new Border States’ Scholarship Program.

How Does This Program Work?

Currently at Hocking College, out-of-state students pay $4,390 in tuition fees per semester. Starting in Autumn 2018, students who live in Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia will be eligible for a $1,695 scholarship per semester that will reduce their tuition to $2,695. However, applicants should be aware that this amount does not reflect the cost of the books and supplies, course fees, housing, and a meal plan.

Students who plan to apply for Hocking College’s Bordering States’ Scholarship must meet the following requirements:

  • Students need to provide proof of residing in one of Ohio's bordering states: Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.
  • Hocking College’s Bordering States’ Scholarship will be awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis so students should fill out all the necessary paperwork as soon as possible.
  • Students must be enrolled at Hocking College on a full-time basis, or 12+ credit hour classes (usually 4 classes or more – depending on the program).
