School Overview

Owens State Community College operates campuses in Findlay and Toledo, Ohio. It is a comprehensive community college that offers traditional academic education and professional career training, as well as post-secondary enrollment for high school students.

Owens State was established in 1965, with the Findlay campus opening in 1983. It was named after Michael J. Owens, a prominent entrepreneur at the turn of the 20th century. In 2006 the school partnered with Lourdes College to launch the 60/60 Program, allowing Owens allied health students to pursue baccalaureate degrees at Lourdes.

The post-secondary enrollment program is available for qualifying high school students from the surrounding areas. Student coursework is applied to both high school and college credit, and in some cases, basic costs such as books and tuition are subsidized by the state of Ohio.

Owens State has partnerships with a number of area high schools, allowing high school and adult students to attend classes off-campus. These high schools include Swanton, Springfield, Liberty Benton, Arcadia, Riverdale, and the two newest sites, Rogers High School and the Skilled Learning Center in Putnam County.
