The mission of the Regional Choice Initiative is to share responsibility for opportunities which meet the future needs of students in Northwest Pennsylvania.
Dual Enrollment Program
Pennsylvania students can earn their high school diploma and college credits at the same time.
- College credits
- High school credits
- Direct instruction from college faculty
- Reasonable cost
Students are exposed to the reality of college expectations during their high school years, while parents and high school staff remain very supportive.
- College faculty expectations
- College courses on a college transcript
- Discounted college costs
- Gradual transition from high school instruction to college instruction and expectations
Dual enrollment offers a unique experience for all Northwest Tri-County Intermediate area students who are ready to do college level work.
Pennsylvania legislators passed legislation that allows high school juniors and seniors to be enrolled in their home high school and college at the same time while receiving credit for both. While high school freshmen and sophomores can enroll in RCI, they require special permission through the university admissions office.
