Paul D. Camp Community College is hosting four informational sessions in February for those who are interested in learning more about the college’s Dual Enrollment Program. Dual Enrollment is a program that allows qualified high school students to enroll in college courses while in high school. The credits earned meet the requirements for high school graduation and simultaneously earn college credit.
The sessions are scheduled as follows:
|Wednesday, Feb. 5||5:30 – 6:30 pm||Kings Fork High School||351 Kings Fork Rd., Suffolk|
|Wednesday, Feb. 12||5:30 – 6:30 pm||Smithfield High School||14171 Turner Dr., Smithfield|
|Tuesday, Feb. 18||5:30 – 6:30 pm||Workforce Development Center||100 N. College Dr., Franklin|
|Wednesday, Feb. 26 (Southampton and Isle of Wight academies, and home schooled students)||5:30 – 6:30 pm||Workforce Development Center||100 N. College Dr., Franklin|
At these sessions, attendees can learn the following:
- Benefits of this program to students
- Costs, etc. for enrolling in dual enrollment courses
- Differences and similarities of the dual enrollment program to other programs (such as the Advanced Placement program)
Paul D. Camp Community College counselors will be available to review and discuss other questions. Additionally, light refreshments will be provided at the event.
“You need not RSVP to attend. We simply ask all parents, guardians, or others interested in dual enrollment to come out,” said PDCCC Educational Projects Coordinator Audrey Lawrence. “You’ll find that this effort is a win-win situation for students and parents alike. The students get ahead in their educational goals and parents save a lot of money in the process.”
Attendees can come by any time during the information sessions to receive information that will include the benefits and costs of enrolling in the program. PDCCC counselors will be on hand as well.
