Dual Enrollment

Philipsburg-Osceola Area School District has entered into Dual Enrollment Agreements with several colleges: Mount Aloysius, Lock Haven and Saint Francis University. Students can earn college credit for selected courses that they take in high school. Students can also take courses at the Clearfield campus of Lock Haven. There are also opportunities for students to complete web based courses through Lock Haven University. 

The Dual Enrollment Program lowers the cost of college credits by an enormous amount, saving students money and time.  The average Dual Enrolled class costs $200 and secures the student with three or more college credits.  However, some course’s costs vary depending on how many credits the student receives from the class.  When compared with college rates, Dual Enrollment saves a student more than $1,000 per class and with more than nine (9) Dual Enrolled classes offered, this is an opportunity for many students.  

Mount Aloysius will award college credits for AP Calculus, Organic Chemistry, Anatomy and Physiology, AP Physics, AP Chemistry, AP United States History, AP Government and Politics,   AP World History, and AP Psychology.

In both programs, students pay reduced tuition and must maintain satisfactory grade performance.  Students typically are able to transfer credits to a university.  However, they should verify with their selected college about requirements for transfer for their specific major.

Please contact the senior high school guidance office for details and applications.  Students must complete their applications by mid-October.
