Dual Enrollment Program offered in Hanover by Penn State York

November 01, 2012

High school students 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 Monday, Nov. 5. The session, from 3-5 p.m., will take place at the Guthrie Memorial Library, 2 Library Place, Hanover, Pa. This is the second semester during which courses are being offered at the library for high school students in the Dual Enrollment Program.

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 also are being offered in Hanover so that students from that area do not have to travel. Courses being considered for spring 2013 are speech, psychology and statistics.

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 year or senior 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 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 eight 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 this program.
