Dual Enrollment

Northeast Bradford School District partners with Mansfield University, Clarion University and Lackawanna College to offer college courses to high school juniors and seniors*. These courses are designed for highly-motivated, academically successful students who plan to attend college after graduation. Through the dual enrollment program, students have the opportunity to earn college credits while they earn high school credits.

*Sophomore students who are identified as gifted may also participate in Mansfield and Clarion courses.

Prerequisites

Students in grades 11 and 12 are eligible to participate in dual enrollment courses. (Students identified as gifted in grade 10 may also participate in courses offered by Mansfield and Clarion.)

To participate, students must meet the eligibility requirements outlined in the district’s Dual Enrollment Policy:

  • Satisfactorily completed the appropriate units of credit for his/her grade level.
  • Have an 89% average or better in all district classes.
  • Meet district attendance criteria.
  • Pass the university’s placement examination(s).
  • Maintain a minimum grade of an 80% in each dual enrollment course.

Students may pursue dual enrollment credit for up to four Lackawanna College courses per school year. In addition, students may schedule a total of two courses per semester from Mansfield and/or Clarion.

Tuition Costs & Savings

Clarion

The price of one online dual enrollment course is approximately $345, plus a one-time fee of $50 for participation in the dual enrollment program.  Textbooks must be purchased separately for each course.

Students are permitted to take one course at the discounted rate per semester. (The price for a second course in the same semester is the standard tuition rate of $1,400. To take advantage of the savings offered by the dual enrollment programs, students are recommended to take only one Clarion course per semester.)

Lackawanna

The price of one online dual enrollment course is $300 for a 3-credit course and $400 for a 4-credit course, averaging $100 per credit. Textbooks are provided by NEB.

Mansfield

The price of one online dual enrollment course is approximately $300, about $100 per credit. Textbooks must be purchased separately for each course.

There is no limit to the number of dual enrollment courses a student can take at the discounted rate each semester.


Savings

By participating in dual enrollment courses, students pay 25% of regularly priced college courses. By completing the coursework in high school, they forego the additional costs of room and board, meals, parking, etc. A student can easily graduate high school with a year’s worth of college for $3,250, instead of $25,000 (an average year at Mansfield University).


Registration

Enrollment for fall courses takes place the prior spring.  Enrollment for spring courses takes place in the fall. During the enrollment period, the school counselor holds formal registration sessions for students.

Each January, the school counselor hosts an informational session in the evening for all interested parents and students eligible to participate the following year.
