Penn State Hazleton to host Lion Scholar dual enrollment information session

HAZLETON, Pa. — Penn State Hazleton will hold an information session at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 17, for high school students interested in taking classes at the campus and earning college credits at a reduced rate. The event will be held in 115 Evelyn Graham Academic Building and is open to students who will be high school juniors and seniors in fall 2017. Parents also are encouraged to attend.

The Lion Scholars Dual Enrollment program allows high school students to enroll in on-campus courses at 50 percent off the tuition rate. In addition to the tuition, students also are responsible for paying for books and associated fees.

Students may take up to eight credits per semester, which allows them to earn a maximum of 16 credits per academic year. To remain in the program, students must earn a grade of C or better in each course.

Credits earned may 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.
