Dual enrollment policy updated, Somerset students have free session with SU on May 9

Posted

WESTOVER — The Somerset County Board of Education approved text amendments to Policy 500-39 titled “Dual Enrollment for Dual Enrollment Students.”

Deputy Superintendent Tom Davis said the policy dates to 2013 and was designed to reduce the cost of dual enrollment for high school students. Somerset County Public Schools decided to not differentiate between students able or unable to pay for tuition, and the school system pays for tuition — and textbooks — for up to eight college courses.

Mr. Davis said while the former policy addressed Free and Reduced Meal Students, in practice it did not differentiate between FARMS and other students.

At the recommendation and motion of board member Caleb Shores the updated policy was approved on first and final reader at the regular April meeting.

Related to dual enrollment, Salisbury University has a virtual information program 5:30 p.m. Monday, May 9 and students and parents may attend online or watch it at Crisfield High School, in the journalism room.

To attend, visit Salisbury.edu/dual-ensalisbury.edu/ and learn how to attend college through the dual enrollment program at SU. Over 60 courses offered, and Somerset County juniors and seniors can enroll to earn college credit.
