Dual enrollment cost to drop

June 4, 2014

de pixStudents taking dual enrollment classes from Bryan College will receive a price break beginning this fall, Ruston Pierce, admissions project manager, has announced.

“A restructuring of the dual enrollment program has created savings which will be passed along to families participating in the program,” he said. The change is effective for online, partner site, and Classical Conversation classes, he said.

The cost for a class will drop to $100 per credit hour, he said. Most classes are three credit hours, but mathematics and lab science classes are four credit hours.

Bryan typically offers 10 classes for dual enrollment students each semester, Mr. Pierce said. However, any 100- or 200-level course in the college catalog can be made available.

“Most dual enrollment programs cost about $150 per credit hour, and they require students to purchase a textbook offered by the particular college,” he said. “In addition to our lower cost, we give students the ISBN number for the text and let them buy the book anywhere they like.”

He pointed out that for Tennessee students who qualify for the Hope Scholarship, the new price will allow them to enter college with up to 12 hours of credit at no cost to the student. “Tennessee offers qualifying students $1,200 in their junior and senior years in high school for dual enrollment programs such as Bryan’s, so the classes essentially would be free,” he said.
