Park University announces Early College Online Program for High School Students

Thanks to a new program by Park University’s Early College Online program, high school students can get a head start on earning college credits by enrolling. 

The new program will begin on Monday, June 8, in conjunction with Park’s eight-week Summer term.

“High school students who will complete their sophomore, junior or senior year this spring and have a grade point average of 3.0 or higher are eligible to participate, earning college credit at a fraction of the University’s regular tuition rate and within a shorter timeframe than through dual-credit or Advanced Placement coursework,” university officials shared via a news release. “Students earn transferable college credit and learn how to effectively participate in college courses online — an increasingly important skill to possess.”

The program allows students to take up to two online courses (six credit hours) taught by experienced Park University faculty. Small class sizes, faculty-student interaction and virtual academic support resources are in place to aid student success officials added.

The University is offering three courses for high school students as a part of the program: Public Speaking (CA 103), American National Government (PO 200) and Introduction to Sociology (SO 141) at a cost of $90 per credit hour ($270 per course).

University officials say this is a discount of more than 75 percent the regular tuition rate of $415 per credit hour.
