Dual Enrollment / Early Advantage


If you're a student who wants to earn college credit while still in high school, check out all the possibilities at Edinboro University.

Jump-Start Your College Career

As a high school junior or senior, you have the opportunity to take up to 11 credits per semester through Edinboro University at a significantly reduced cost. Please complete the Non-Degree Seeking Student Application and obtain permission from your high school.

Regional Choice Initiative Program

The Dual Enrollment/Early Advantage program is made possible through the Regional Choice Initiative, a program coordinated by the Northwest Tri-County Intermediate Unit in cooperation with high schools in Erie and Crawford counties.

As a high school student, you may be recommended for participation in the program, or you can initiate the process by speaking with your school’s guidance counselor. Most high school students choose to enroll in one or two general education courses each semester of their junior and senior year, accelerating their education and helping to prepare them for the future.
