Gannon University’s High School Dual Enrollment program provides an opportunity for GO College juniors and seniors to enroll in college courses while in high school at no cost. The program gives students the chance to jump-start their pursuit of a college degree, enter the work force earlier than their peers, and more importantly, save as much as $9000 in tuition and fees (achievable by taking two classes as both a junior and senior).The college courses, whether taken for required or elective high school credit, are weighted and will be factored into the student’s GPA. A student may substitute a high school core class (English, Math, etc.) by successfully completed a dual enrollment class at Gannon with a C or higher. Grades appear on the student’s report card along with the grades earned in Erie High School courses.
High School dual enrollment can begin following the completion of sophomore year and ends after the spring semester of senior year.
