Dual-Credit

Health and Science High School offers many classes that include both high school credit and the option for college credit at the same time. Students are able to get college credit for a tuition fee that is substantially less than the cost of the same credits once students are in college.  Students enrolled in PSU classes have access to additional services at PSU. For detailed information on specific classes, course fees and enrollment process, see each College below.

Students must obtain the course number(s) and CRN(s) from your teacher prior to beginning the enrollment process for each university. ‚Äč

Enrollment

Step One: 

Apply to PSU

Apply to become a student at PSU. This step only needs to be done once, ever. Returning students do not need to do this step. Create a temporary login and password which will generate your PSU ID number and a security/activation code. You will need this for the next step!

Step Two: Activate Account

Activate your online account, called an ODIN account. You will need your PSU ID number and the security/activation code you received from completing step one. You only need to do this once. Returning students do not need to do this step.

Step Three: Register for Classes

Now you can register for your class or classes for the current term/semester. Returning
students who have an active ODIN account only need to do this step.

Tuition

PSU Tuition is $220 per course; the same course taught on campus is $872 so taking dual credit courses saves students a significant amount of money if they plan to attend college. 

Students who provide documentation of financial need (free/reduced lunch eligibility or a counselor letter) pay $50 per course. This documentation must be uploaded to the online registration system the first time the student registers for a course. The same document or a note indicating that the document is on file must be uploadedin subsequent registration periods.
