DIFFERENT TYPES OF COLLEGE CREDITS
Students leave high school with a college transcript.
A college course is taught by CPACTC instructors, who are approved as adjunct college faculty, at CPACTC.
There is a cost to students for HACC and Harrisburg University credits students earn, though it is greatly reduces the standard tuition rate of the schools.
There is no cost to students for Penn College credits.
These courses are part of the normal curriculum and the course is delivered during the normal program time.
CHS enrollment is optional but highly recommended - Why do the work and not get the credits?
These credits can also be transferred to many other schools across the state. Even for students that don’t intend to pursue their current program after high school, these credits can count as elective credits in college.
