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

To enroll in a Penn College NOW course, the student must pass the Penn College reading placement test which will be administered at your school. Courses also require that students meet any pre- or co-requisites required for the individual course.

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 or limited to seniors only.

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