Dual-enrollment options will be open to eligible Pottsgrove students who are at least 15 years of age. Participation in a dual-enrollment program enables students to earn both high school and college credit at the same time. Students may select from a number of options. Options include approved elective courses to be taken online, MCCC courses offered at PGHS, at the college campus, full-time early admission, and college credit for Pottsgrove courses that have been identified as such by the college such as AP European History, AP English Literature.
Students interested in a dual-enrollment program should discuss the options with their guidance counselors. Typically, early admission requires completion of a college application, Pottsgrove approval of the course and adequate performance on the college placement tests. Students required to take remedial courses will not be granted high school credit for those courses, but upon completion of the remedial courses, may receive high school credit for regular college courses taken thereafter.
MCCC faculty members who teach a college course in a Pottsgrove classroom are supervised and evaluated by the college. Pottsgrove School District is not a direct supervisor of MCCC faculty. PGSD will communicate with MCCC and advocate for each Pottsgrove dual-enrollment student.
All financial obligations for application and enrollment will be the responsibility of the student and his/her family.
