Officials: New MD Law Lowers Dual Enrollment Costs

Posted: Updated:

WICOMICO CO., Md. - Dual-enrollment, which lets high school students take college courses while in high school isn't a new program.

But a new Maryland law could lower costs for students.

According to school officials, Wicomico County students looking to enroll at Wor-Wic Community College will now pay a hundred dollars less for every three-credits taken.

WMDT spoke with county officials and students about the new changes.

"Every student has an opportunity to be enrolled in college before they complete high school graduation, which gives them a jump start on their education before they complete high school," said Dr. Margo Handy, assistant superintendent instruction and student services.

"I can afford my education when I go to college so I can take college classes while in college to take college in high school and manage to get all of it done," said Keshawn Hinmon, a senior at Wicomico High School.

Public school students who qualify for free and reduced meals will only pay for course fees and books instead of by credit.  According to officials, most of those students will be eligible for financial assistance at Wor-Wic to help defray that cost as well.
