High school students invited to Dual Credit Information Night at USF Performing Arts Center

Dec. 18, 2012 FORT WAYNE, Ind. - 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 6-8 p.m. in the USF Performing Arts Center, the former Scottish Rite Center, at 431 W. Berry St., Fort Wayne, Ind.

Students, parents and guidance counselors can learn from regional higher education institutions 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.

General topics will include basic information on dual credit, opportunities for participation, course offerings, financial savings and transferability of course work. Experts from each university will share details on their specific program after the general presentation. Colleges and universities represented will be the University of Saint Francis, Indiana-Purdue at Fort Wayne, Ivy Tech and Indiana Tech.

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.

  The University of Saint Francis, founded in 1890 as a comprehensive university in the Catholic Franciscan tradition, offers more than 60 undergraduate and 14 graduate programs in five schools: The School of Health Sciences, School of Arts and Sciences, Keith Busse School of Business and Entrepreneurial Leadership, School of Professional Studies and School of Creative Arts. More than 2,300 students from a broad geographic region attend USF for its academic excellence. The university has a regional campus in Crown Point, Ind.
