News Release, College of Southern Maryland

The College of Southern Maryland (CSM) invites area parents of high school students to attend an informational Dual Enrollment Parent Night at one of three of the college’s four campuses, Feb. 18, 19 and 20 to learn more about the opportunity that allows high school students to take classes at CSM for college credit while satisfying high school graduation requirements.

The benefits of dual enrollment include savings on tuition since dual-enrolled students pay half of CSM’s regular tuition rate for their courses, and college credits earned at CSM can be transferred to most colleges and universities around the country.

Dual enrollment is a competitive admissions program, and students must demonstrate college-readiness to participate. Students in dual enrollment must complete an application, complete college-level placement options and submit a signed form by May 15 for the summer semester, July 15 for the fall semester and Dec. 15 for the spring semester.

Dual enrollment is a popular option for many reasons, according to CSM Assistant Director of Admissions Shelby Potts, as an opportunity to earn college credit and get a sense of college. In addition, dual enrollment provides a new social and academic challenge for those who are ready.

The Prince Frederick Campus Dual Enrollment Parent Night will be held 6-8 p.m., Feb. 18, in Building B, Multipurpose Room, 115 J.W. Williams Road in Prince Frederick.

The La Plata Campus Dual Enrollment Parent Night will be held 6-8 p.m., Feb. 19, in the Business and Industry (BI) Building, Room 113/113E, 8730 Mitchell Road in La Plata.

The Leonardtown Campus Dual Enrollment Parent Night will be held 6-8 p.m., Feb. 20, in Building A, Room 206, 22950 Hollywood Road in Leonardtown.
