Dual Enrollment permits high school students to take courses at local higher education institutions to earn college credits while remaining enrolled at their high school. The courses count toward high school graduation requirements and toward earning a college degree. The students continue to have full access to activities and programs at their high school, including the graduation ceremony. The college credits are offered at a deeply discounted rate. Under the Pennsylvania Transfer and Articulation Agreement, many Pennsylvania colleges and universities accept these credits for students who transfer to their institutions.
During the 2023-24 school year, Susquehannock High School is continuing to partner with Harrisburg Area Community College, Penn State York, Millersville University, Towson University, and York College of Pennsylvania for Dual Enrollment agreements for students. If you would like to do Dual Enrollment at any of these schools, the first step in the process is to arrange a meeting with your school counselor. Should you choose to pursue Dual Enrollment you will need to complete paperwork for both SHS and the school you’re selecting to take courses at and submit it to the counseling office and/or college prior to the start of the next school year. Prior to seeking out a meeting with your school counselor, it is recommended that you take a look at the Frequently Asked Questions below.

For the 2021-2022 school year this event is scheduled to take place on Thursday, March 21st, 2024. Resources including handouts from from past presentations are available below.
