Pathways for Jamaican Students

The Jamaican Ministry of Education Occupational Degree Pathways

In this program, students will spend one 8 week semester at Hocking College completing the following courses: Fitness Management Program; ATS Fitness, Massage, and Health Studies; and Renewable Energy.

 

About This Program

In September 2016, a memorandum of understanding (MOU) was signed between Excelsior Community College (ECC) in Jamaica and Hocking College. The MOU allows Jamaican students to study abroad at Hocking College for a semester starting in Autumn 2017. Students participating in the program will be able to further advance their knowledge and skills in the fields of Fitness Management; ATS Fitness, Massage and Health Studies; and Renewable Energy.

 

Jamaican students participating in the program are eligible for Hocking College’s G.R.E.A.T scholarship to help alleviate the cost of tuition. To apply, students need to complete the G.R.E.A.T application, in addition to completing the international student checklist and application.
