Through our Dual Enrollment Program, you will experience a college class, access resources available only to Penn Staters and earn college credit from Penn State.
- Credits earned can be applied to a Penn State degree and are part of one transcript recognized at all Penn State campuses. Dual enrollment credit may also be transferred to another college or university.
- Students who will have completed their junior year of high school are eligible for dual enrollment. *Exceptions for high school students who will be entering their junior year are considered on a case-by-case basis.
- Dual enrollment students may take up to 3 credits (1 course) per semester. *Although it is recommended that a student only take 3 credits (1 course) during the Summer II session, if a student would like to take up to 6 credits (2 courses), students are welcome to do so.
- Dual enrollment courses are taught by faculty approved to teach high school students.
