Published on: February 22, 2010How can high school students get a jump start on their college education this summer? Get all the details at the March 2, March 9 and April 14 Dual Credit information sessions at Lone Star College-CyFair and LSC-Fairbanks Center.
High school juniors and seniors can earn high school and college credit in classes such as English, biology, math, history, psychology, economics, speech and more. The classes are transferable to most public universities and colleges. Courses are available during two summer sessions at LSC-CyFair June 7 through July 13 and July 15 through Aug. 19.
Tuition is free, though some fees do apply. However, fee scholarships and textbook scholarships are available. This is a savings of $114 for each 3-hour class.
LSC-CyFair and the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District are co-hosting three information sessions for 10th- through 12th-graders and their parents. No reservations are needed.
The sessions will include information such as who qualifies, what courses are available, the application process, benefits of dual credit as well as a question and answer period.
Among the staff who will be providing information are LSC-CyFair’s Vice President for Student Learning Dr. Feleccia Moore-Davis; Dual Credit Advisor Judy Rodriguez and CFISD’s Dr. Marie Keith, director of college and career readiness.
The information sessions are set for 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 2 and again Wednesday, April 14 on the campus at 9191 Barker Cypress as well as at 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 9 at the satellite center at 14955 Northwest Freeway.
