Ready to return?


In Northeast Ohio and across the U.S., thousands of students leave college without earning a degree and owe money to their former institution. In some cases, financial debt prevents students from accessing their transcripts — an official record of the college credits they previously earned. Without an official transcript, students are often unable to continue their education at any other college or university.

If you’re a Northeast Ohio student who left college before earning a degree and want to return to school, College Now is here to help!
