It’s not too early for parents and students to think about college. In fact, it’s not too early for high school students to start earning credits toward their college education while saving Mom and Dad some money, too!
During Del Mar College’s (DMC) Dual Credit Community Night on Tuesday, Oct. 17, high school juniors and seniors—and their parents—can learn about earning college credits while concurrently working toward their high school diplomas.
The free event runs from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in Room 106 in the DMC Center for Economic Development (3209 S. Staples across from W. B. Ray High School). For more information, contact Bob Montez, DMC Early College Programs director, at 361-698-1634 OR firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.delmar.edu/dualcredit.
The DMC Dual Credit program is specifically designed to provide a cost effective option for Coastal Bend secondary school partners. The program ensures that students, administrators and school districts are afforded access to the educational value Del Mar College has offered for over 80 years.
High school students can earn up to 24 college credit hours by the time they graduate with a $99 per three-hour credit course fee structure that applies no matter where they live within or outside the College’s district.
College representatives will provide information about admissions and testing requirements, spring 2018 registration, transferability and free tutoring. Participants also will learn about some of the over 200 transfer, occupational and technical programs available at Del Mar College, along with financial aid and scholarship opportunities.
Additionally, eligible high school students have access to the College’s facilities and services, including campus libraries and online library resources and computer labs, along with academic and other student support services. And depending on the program provided at their high school, students may take college-level courses at their own school, on one of the College’s campuses or online.
Dual Credit at Del Mar College … it’s a great step toward the future.
