Fremont Community Schools in Angola and Trine University are partnering to allow Fremont High School students to earn an associate degree after one semester at Trine. Through the Fremont Early College Alliance, the university says students will be able to select from 18 Fremont High School courses that will also count for college credit at Trine.
Fremont High School students can also enroll in additional courses available on Trine’s campus at a reduced tuition rate.
“Trine University has been an excellent partner in the initiation, maintenance and growth of the dual credit program at Fremont High School,” said Mark Sherbondy, Fremont High School principal. “Trine’s rigorous, high-quality courses help raise the academic expectations across the board for the entire Fremont school community. Fremont High School families enjoy all the advantages of earning college credits while in high school. The acceptance rate of Trine University credits allows students to save tuition dollars and provides flexibility to double major and graduate early.”
Trine says Fremont students who complete the course requirements will earn an associate in science or associate of general studies degree if they attend Trine University directly after high school graduation and successfully complete one semester as a full-time degree-seeking student.
