Information Session set for June 4 in Hanover
High school juniors and seniors in Hanover have the opportunity to learn more about the Dual Enrollment Program and Penn State courses being offered at the Guthrie Memorial Library through Penn State York during an information session set for Tuesday, June 4. The session, from 3-5 p.m., will take place at the Guthrie Memorial Library, 2 Library Place, Hanover, Pa. Others interested in taking courses in Hanover are also invited to attend.
Participation in Dual Enrollment enables qualified high school students to get a jump on their college careers by earning college credits while still in high school at a 50 percent tuition reduction. In addition to offering courses at the Penn State York campus, courses are also being offered in Hanover so that students from that area do not have to travel in order to participate. Courses being offered for the fall semester are College Algebra (Math 021), Techniques of Calculus I (Math 110), and Electrical Systems (EET 105).
During the June 4 information session, LeighAnn Myers, an admissions counselor at Penn State York, will be available to share information and answer questions about the Dual Enrollment Program in Hanover and the educational opportunities available at Penn State York.
To be considered for the program, students must be in their junior or senior year of high school and have a cumulative grade-point average of a 3.0 or a combined SAT1 score of 1,000 to be eligible for this program.
Eligible dual enrollment students will receive tuition support in the amount of 50 percent of the tuition for two courses during each of four semesters. As long as a grade of C or better is maintained in each course, students may remain in this program, receiving the same tuition support each semester, for a total of four semesters. This tuition support is available for two courses (up to 8 credits) per semester for four semesters.
Credits earned under the provisions of this program are valid at any Penn State location and may be transferred to another institution in the same way as any other Penn State credits. Students who have graduated from high school may not participate in the dual enrollment program.
