Conwell-Egan Catholic Juniors and Seniors can dual-enroll in “Level 100” courses at Holy Family University, receiving credit on both CEC and college transcripts. Students have the opportunity to experience a college course with a college professor, while never having to leaving CEC’s campus.
The student must have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.5 to qualify for consideration. The cost of each 1-semester (3 credit) university level course is included in the school fee. (Holy Family Registration fee is waived).
Transfer of course credits into the student’s ultimate college destination is dependent upon each individual college/university.
Each area of study has a course for each semester; therefore students registering must take both courses in that area of study (i.e. Philosophy I in the first semester & Philosophy II in the second semester). Students meet with the professors three days per week and have study the other two days. Some courses have an online component in conjunction with the classes at CEC.
Course offerings may vary each year.
Dual Enrollment allows students to enroll in courses taught at CEC by Holy Family University faculty. Students who successfully complete these courses, receive college credit from HFU as well as AP level credits from CEC.
The courses are open to 11th and 12th grade students who qualify academically.
The course application fee is waived and the cost for each course is covered by the CEC School Fee.
Each area of study has a course for each semester; therefore students registering must take both courses in that area of study. i.e. Sociology 101 in the first semester & Sociology 201 in the second semester. Students meet with the professors three days per week and have study hall the other two days. Some courses have an online component in conjunction with the classes at CEC. Courses listed are proposed, based on availability of instructor. If needed, an alternate first level course can be substituted.
Qualified Juniors are able to take one area of study as an elective in their Junior year (2 courses, 6 credits). Qualified Seniors are able to take two areas of study as electives in their Senior year (4 courses, 12 credits).
A separate HFU registration sheet must be filled out by the student and parent to complete the registration process once the student is accepted into an HFU course. Students are responsible to cover the cost of textbooks for the courses.
