The Dual Enrollment Program is a dual enrollment program through which qualified high school juniors and seniors may receive high school and college credit simultaneously. Dual Enrollment enables qualified high school juniors and seniors to enroll in and take college credit courses at the HACC's Lancaster Campus at one of our off site locations or online. Students can earn concurrent high school and college credit. Course offerings are suggested and approved by HACC's Office of College Pathways with an emphasis on those courses having maximum transferability to post-secondary institutions. Courses are taught by HACC faculty members and consist of Dual Enrollment students and traditional HACC college students. Courses are offered at the prevailing college tuition rate.
What are the benefits of Dual Enrollment?
Students earn college credit while they are in high school allowing students to jump start their college career. Students will experience the college setting, therefore easing the transition from high school to college. Students will also learn how to manage their time as they become familiar with the format of a college class. Earning college credits and being in a college setting may help undecided students develop their plans following high school. Credits can be transferred to many four year college and universities, allowing students to save time and money by getting a head start with their college experience.
Students can visit PA TRAC
