Hocking's Partnership with Franklin Offers Students 3 Degree Options

by Tracey A. Maine on December 9, 2019

In addition to meeting the state of Ohio’s affordable and attainable bachelor’s degree education goals, Franklin University has 230 long-standing partnerships with various community colleges – including Hocking College. 

Presently, Hocking College’s partnership with Franklin University allows students to obtain their bachelor’s degree in following 8 different areas of study:

  • Allied Health & Nursing
  • Accounting & Financial Services
  • Business
  • Cyber Security
  • Web Development
  • Addiction Counseling
  • Criminal Justice
  • Public Safety

These partnerships save students money and time by allowing the student to take the third year of their bachelor’s degree at Hocking College – paying the community college tuition rate

The options students have to pursue their bachelor’s degree at a reduced rate are as follows:

Option A: 1+2+1

Students complete one year of College Credit Plus in their high school or on-campus, complete 2 years at Hocking College and then their final year at Franklin University. 

Franklin University estimates that a student who completes this option will only spend $24,495 to obtain their bachelor's degree.

Option B: 3+1

Students complete 3 years at Hocking College and then their final year at Franklin University.

Franklin University estimates that a student who completes this option will only spend $30,380 to obtain their bachelor's degree.

Option C: 2+2

Students complete 2 years at Hocking College and then their final 2 years at Franklin University.

Franklin University estimates that a student who completes this option will only spend $37,242 to obtain their bachelor's degree.


Why does this matter? The cost of a bachelor’s degree at a private university would roughly be $143,320. This means that these three options can potentially save students and their families more than $100K in student loans/debt!
