Dual Enrollment

Penn State offers dual enrollment to high school students who would like to attend the Mont Alto campus to take college courses. This is a great opportunity for students to experience college-level coursework and earn credits before their high school graduation. 

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.
