POCATELLO – Idaho State University will again offer on-campus dual enrollment courses for high school students in Southeast Idaho this fall.
In partnership with the Early College Program, the program allows students to take college-level general education courses for both college and high school credits. Students will learn about the rigors of college and gain the confidence to be successful in their program of study.
The students will take classes by select ISU professors alongside current ISU students. Because the State of Idaho has allotted $4,125 through Advanced Opportunities, students can enroll in dual enrollment courses at little to no cost to them.
“I loved my dual enrollment experience,” said Hagen Moore, a recent Blackfoot High School graduate who participated in the program last year. “I believe that any high school student who has taken a dual enrollment class is fully capable of succeeding in a situation similar to mine.”
Courses for the fall will include Elementary Shoshoni, Japanese and French; Critical Reading and Writing; Southeast Asia; Introduction to General Psychology; Introduction to Sociology; Modern Europe; Introduction to Art and more. An expanded schedule can be found at isu.edu/cal/outreach.
Courses for the fall are filling quickly, and students are encouraged to sign up now. Students must be admitted to the Early College Program in order to participate in the program. Students can apply at isu.edu/ecp.
“There is no better way to prepare a student for college than to have them participate in this program with the support of ISU’s outstanding faculty,” said College of Arts & Letters dean Kandi Turley-Ames.
The on-campus dual enrollment program started in Fall 2017 and grew from 12 to 32 students in Spring 2018. The number of participating high schools also grew from four to seven.
