SDSM& T DUAL ENROLLMENT PROGRAM OFFERS
OPPORTUNITY TO JUMP START COLLEGIATE CAREER
Central, Stevens, St. Thomas More, Douglas, RC Christian. Would also like to make a major reference to home schooled students in the region.
Wish we could get some quotes from people: ask Julie any people who we could approach - perhaps Dr. Whitehead for a quote,
and so forth. Opportunity to jump start your collegiate career - finish college and enter the work force more quickly - coupled with the
salaries of Tech students. Inviting idea.
Maybe we need to brainstorm more.
The South Dakota School of Mines andTechnology dual enrollment program offers high school students an opportunity to get a head start on their college education by attending university classes. Any student in the eleventh or twelfth grade, and currently attending high school is eligible to enroll in up to two courses per semester at the South Dakota School of Mines and receive both high school and college credit.
The dual enrollment policy was enacted through a legislative bill passed in 1990. The dual credit program allows high school students the ability to get a jump start on their college career and at the same time fulfill high school requirements. Students and parents should be aware that the resident school district is not responsible for any fees associated with these college courses.
Students who have taken advantage of this program have come from…………… The program provides a possibility for home schooled students.
“ For those students that desire additional academic challenges, this is a marvelous opportunity to attend a nationally known university and expand their knowledge,” said Don Hapward, Director of Admissions at SDSM& T. “ It also allows them to come to the Tech campus, meet other students, associate with our faculty, and get an up- close, in- depth look what the School of Mines is all about. Another major plus for area students is the advanced work and credit they can present to institutions in other parts of the nation as they make plans for post- secondary education.” Students interested in learning more about this opportunity, or wishing to enroll in SDSM& T classes, should contact their high school Guidance Office, or the SDSM& T Office of Academic and Enrollment Services at 394.2400.
