University of the Sciences Dual Enrollment Courses

Lower Merion School District has partnered with the University of the Sciences to provide juniors and seniors with opportunities for successful transition from high school to college. The Dual Enrollment Program is offered to Harriton and Lower Merion High School juniors and seniors. The Program allows students to take up to two courses during the 2020-2021 school year and earn up to five college credits upon successful completion of these two courses. A member of the LMSD staff will meet with students interested in enrolling in the program to provide additional information and complete the application process. New students admitted into the University of the Sciences-LMSD Dual Enrollment Program will complete Session 1 during the 2020-2021 school year and Session 2 during the 2021-2022 school year.
