Tips on scheduling courses

Associate Degree Curriculum Worksheet for MET

Please Note:  When working on your schedule - use your Curriculum Worksheet to determine which quarter classes are offered.  Do NOT trust any other source.  Sometimes the main course catalog has misprints on when courses are offered.  The Curriculum Worksheet is the most accurate.  Also, the worksheet is a good way to keep a record of the courses you have already taken.  Refer to this each quarter when you plan your new schedule.

B.S. Completion Program

Now you can continue on after receiving your Associates Degree and obtain a Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering Technology from Miami University (Ohio)!  The Miami BS Completion Program consists of a combination of bridge courses that you can take at North Central or Ohio State-Mansfield, plus 11 courses from Miami University delivered via videoconferencing, web-based distance courses and some on-site Saturday labs.  Additional calculus courses, economics, chemistry and humanity courses can be taken as a continuing student at North Central State College.  At the same time, students enroll in advanced Miami courses such as Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer.  The B.S. Degree Completion Program is offered at night, with each course running for about three hours, one night per week.  The Miami courses are delivered by a combination of DVD, CD and streaming lectures over the Internet, along with live videoconferencing at the new Kehoe Center for Advanced Learning in Shelby.  Students are enrolled from all over the state:  Middletown, Columbus, Marietta, Portsmouth and Mansfield.  The following links provide additional information about the program:
