College lowers rate of College Prep Courses for Summer

Posted April 10, 2014 at 11:14 am

Pennsylvania Highlands Community College recognizes the financial burden that attending college could put on some individuals and families. With that in mind, Penn Highlands is once again offering low cost summer courses to assist students in preparing for the fall 2014 semester.

The special summer rate for these college preparatory classes is $49 per credit. These classes are three credits, which would only cost the student $147, with no additional fees added. The college prep classes being offered include:

  • Basic Algebra
  • Basic English
  • Basic Math
  • Critical College Reading
  • Introduction to Composition
  • Pre-Algebra

If students are unsure of which college prep classes to take, the College has a placement testing system that will help determine what courses will help them follow a comfortable and proper path.

These college prep classes will be offered at each of the College’s five locations: Richland, Blair, Ebensburg, Huntingdon, and Somerset. The courses will begin mid-summer, with dates varying by location, and will wrap up in the middle of August. The timing of these courses will lead student’s right into the fall academic semester, giving them a strong academic foundation to build on.
