Dean College Offering Reduced Tuition Rate to Franklin High School StudentsJune 15, 2012
Franklin students encouraged to get a head start on college
This summer Dean College is providing Franklin High School students an opportunity to pursue college studies with a $200 discount towards a summer session course. “This is another example of Dean partnering with the area community to add value - this time to benefit local high school students,” said Ida M. Lamothe, Associate Dean of Professional and Continuing Studies.
Students are limited to one course in summer session II which begins on July 2, 2012. Current practice asks students to provide a letter of support from their high school guidance counselor in order to register. “Taking a college level course in high school allows a student a chance to gain experience and insight into the college experience,” says Carol Connolly, Director of Operations for SPCS. “Other benefits to taking college level courses in high school include earning transfer credits which may give students greater flexibility in course selection later and cost saving advantages.”
For more information, high school students and their families are encouraged to contact the School of Professional and Continuing Studies at 508-541-1624 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Families are also welcome to attend a panel discussion on the topic of high school students enrolling in college level courses on Thursday, June 21, 2012 at 6:30 pm in Dean College’s Campus Center room 101. This free event is open to the public. Please RSVP to 508-541-1624 or email email@example.com.
