Penn College NOW is a program which allows students to take college classes while in high school. The courses are taught at the high school or career and technology center by Penn College approved high school instructors.

To enroll in a Penn College NOW course you must have passed the most recent PSSA reading test at the “proficient” or “advanced” level. If you do not meet this requirement, contact your school’s point of contact. Certain courses may also require that students meet pre or corequisites required for individual courses.

Beginning Fall 2014, the tuition for Penn College NOW is free.

Generally, 11th and 12th grade students are eligible to participate in the program. A limited number of classes are available to 10th grade students.

Penn College NOW credits will appear on a Penn College transcript and may be applied toward specific Penn College degrees. The extent to which a course will transfer to another college or university is at the discretion of that college or university.
