How can high school students get a jump start on their college education this summer? Get all the details at the March 30 and April 12 Dual Credit information sessions at Lone Star College-CyFair.
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 6 through July 12 and July 14 through Aug. 18.
“This is a great opportunity for students who qualify,” said LSC-CyFair’s Vice President for Student Learning Dr. Feleccia Moore-Davis.
Most dual credit courses take place at the high schools. This summer students will be immersed in the college community, which has significant benefits including our state-of-the-art facilities, great faculty and support services, she said.
Tuition is free, though some fees do apply. This is a savings of $114 for each 3-hour class.
“Compared to area college and university courses, you cannot find a better deal that will have greater impact on your life,” said Moore-Davis.
LSC-CyFair and the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District are co-hosting two 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.
The information sessions are set for 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on the campus at 9191 Barker Cypress.
