Concord offering free college credits to high school students | News
Concord University is teaming up with the West Virginia Department of Education to offer high school students free college credit towards their education degree.
Beginning in the fall, admitted Concord students who completed the Careers in Education program at their technical education center will receive credit for two required education courses — that’s six required college hours for free, the release said.
In addition, when students apply to the Teacher Education program, they will no longer have to submit a portfolio or do the 75 volunteer hours required.
“These individuals have already demonstrated a heart for kids and an interest in a career as an educator prior to graduating high school,” said Dr. Andrea Campbell, CU Department of Education Chair.
The release said this is Concord’s latest effort to make college more affordable for its students. The agreement is valid for any Career in Education completer within three years of their completion date.
“This agreement merges two great programs that will ultimately lead to more outstanding educators in the classroom serving students of West Virginia and beyond,” Campbell said.
