“The Penn State courses in Hanover offer residents the opportunity to live where they learn from a premier university with a national reputation and provide the convenience of taking courses without leaving Hanover,” Warner said.
Information on the opportunities available for high school students to take college courses will also be presented. Penn State York offers high school students the opportunity to take college courses at a 50 percent tuition reduction. This enables students to get a jump on their college careers by earning college credits while still in high school. High school students taking advantage of this exciting opportunity may earn an additional $1,000 scholarship for their first year in college by completing four courses (12 credits) and maintaining a 3.0 (B) grade-point average. This additional scholarship would apply to any student enrolling for his/her freshman year at Penn State York.
