Dual Enrollment Opportunities
Penn State offers an exciting opportunity for high school students to take college courses at a 50 percent tuition reduction. Student's are responsible for paying 50 percent tuition, information technology fee, activity fee, and book costs. Qualified junior and senior students can prepare for the future by earning college credits and experiencing the workload of a college class. Credits earned can be applied to a Penn State degree and are part of one transcript recognized at all Penn State campuses. Credits earned may also be considered for transfer to another institution.
Students who have completed their junior year or are currently in their senior year of high school may apply for high school non-degree enrollment. Exceptions for high school juniors and underclass students may be considered. Students who have graduated from high school may not participate in this program. Interested high school students should contact their high school guidance counselor to discuss the Dual Enrollment program and then should contact the Office of Admissions at Penn State Hazleton for the application requirements and procedures. After completing a non-degree application students will receive notification of the admission decision along with instructions for placement testing, advising, and course scheduling.
Seniors may take up to 8 credits per semester and earn a maximum of 16 credits; juniors and underclass students must contact the
Penn State Hazleton Admissions Office to learn about their credit options. To remain in the program, students must earn a grade of C or better in each course.
Students enrolled in a school district that participates in Pennsylvania's Project 720 may be eligible for additional funding to offset some or all of the remaining costs under Penn State's Dual Enrollment Program, including 50% tuition, information technology fee, activity fees, and book costs. Students are encouraged to contact their high school counselor for more information. Currently, Penn State Hazleton has a Project 720 agreement with the Hazleton Area School District.
Call the Admissions Office at 570-450-3142 for more details on these programs.
