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.
