Owens Community College and Penta Career Center have entered into an agreement that enables junior and senior students at Penta to earn transcripted college credit from Owens.
Transcripted college credits are documented on a student’s official school transcript, and can be used at Owens and other colleges and universities (at the discretion of the other institutions).

announcement event include (L to R) Penta student, Zach Reecer,
Owens President Dr. Mike Bower, Penta Superintendent Ronald Matter
and Penta students Kaleigh Artiaga and Mike Jablonski.
Transcripted credits reduce time to degree completion, and are a financial benefit for students. There are no costs for students to participate in dual enrollment.
As a result of this initiative, more than 80 percent of Penta’s programs will offer transcripted college credit opportunities through Owens. Currently 445 Penta students have submitted applications for dual enrollment with Owens.
“We are very proud to have established this agreement with Owens Community College because it provides our students with a valuable opportunity to get a head start on college while still in high school,” said Penta Superintendent Ronald Matter.
