Highly motivated high school juniors and seniors may apply to earn college credit at Albright College, while still enrolled in high school. Courses count towards an Albright bachelor’s degree or can be transferred to other colleges or universities.
How does it work?
Albright College offers Dual Enrollment courses – covering a variety of topics – each fall, spring and summer session. Enrolled students spend part of each week day morning taking part in classes on Albright’s college campus, and earning college credit.
Each Dual Enrollment course costs $500 and offers one unit per semester (the equivalent of 3.5 credits at most institutions). Students completing five courses (5 units/17.5 credits) over their junior and senior years of high school will have the equivalent of a full semester complete before beginning college.
SRI Dual Enrollment program
Focusing on innovation and entrepreneurship, this innovative research program offers opportunities for high school juniors and seniors to immediately, and concretely, apply Dual Enrollment collegiate studies and earn even more college credit, by pairing a course of their choice with a concurrent SRI research course (SPI 101).
SRI Dual Enrollment credits:
One Dual Enrollment course (1 unit)
SPI 101 – introductory research course (.25 unit)
= 1.25 total units per semester (the equivalent of 5 credits at most institutions)
SRI Dual Enrollment cost:
One Dual Enrollment course ($500)
SPI 101 – introductory research course ($125)
= $625 total per semester
