DUAL ENROLLMENT AGREEMENT WITH READING AREA
Oley Valley Senior High School and Reading Area Community College have entered into a dual enrollment agreement whereby students may earn college credit while they are still in high school. More than 90 OVHS juniors and seniors participated in this program during the 2012-13 school year.
DUAL ENROLLMENT - Participating students will receive credit from both institutions. High school graduation credit will be awarded from OVHS, and transferable college credit will be awarded from RACC. OVHS faculty members on the OVHS campus will teach the courses.
TRANSFERABILITY – RACC maintains a number of articulation agreements with traditional four-year colleges and universities. Since these courses would be traditional college freshman selections, the transferability factor is high. However, students are encouraged to
obtain verification by contacting the colleges and universities where they are interested in attending.
TUITION AND FEES – Tuition and fees are established by RACC and are subject to change. A three-credit course cost $327 and a 4-credit course is $436. Bills are sent to
the home of the registered students by the RACC cashier’s office. Once a student has registered for a course, should he/she decide to withdraw from the course, the amount of the refund is dependent upon the date RACC receives notice of the intended withdrawal.
TRANSCRIPT – Students can obtain official transcripts by sending a written request (along with $3.00 fee) to: Registrar, Reading Area Community College, P.O. Box 1706, Reading, PA 19603.
TIME LINE – All courses will follow the OVHS school calendar. A school counselor will distribute registration information to students in Advanced Composition, AP English, AP U.S. History, AP Biology, AP Chemistry, and AP Calculus courses.RACC CONTACT -
