Dual Credit Info for High School Students

High school students in grades 9-12 interested in learning about the benefits of dual-credit programs are invited to attend Dual Credit Information Night on Wednesday, Feb. 27 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the USF Performing Arts Center, 431 W. Berry St., Fort Wayne.

Students, parents and guidance counselors can learn about participating in dual-credit programs such as the University of Saint Francis’ Achieving Credits Early (ACE), which allows students to earn university credit in a university setting while still in high school. The program fulfills requirements for students wishing to graduate with an Indiana Academic Honors Diploma.

In addition to the University of Saint Francis, other universities and colleges will be represented at the event, including IPFW, Ivy Tech and Indiana Tech. Experts from each institution will share details on their specific program after the general presentation. General topics will include basic information on dual credit, opportunities for participation, course offerings, financial savings and transferability of coursework.

A fair-style event will be held after the information session to give college dual-credit experts a chance to discuss programs with interested individuals. The event is free and no registration is necessary.
