Delaware Valley University is working with area high schools to allow students to start earning college credits early. The university has entered into High School and Career and Technology Center Articulation Agreements with area high schools, allowing prospective DelVal students to save both time and tuition costs. Participating schools in Bucks County include Middle Bucks Institute of Technology and Upper Bucks County Technical School.
Students choose from flexible course options to earn DelVal credits. The program offers an accelerated path to a bachelor’s degree for high-achieving high school students. The agreements also help to facilitate the retention and graduation of students.
Articulation agreements offer an official guarantee that classes completed at one school will be accepted when transferred to another school. They create a partnership between two institutions to recognize credit toward a degree.
“The articulation agreements are a great way for high school students to jump-start their college careers,” said Thomas W. Speakman, DelVal executive director of admission. “Participating high school students will also have the flexibility to be involved with more programs at DelVal.”
The university plans to make additional scholarship options available to participating high school students based upon their academic performance in the university-level courses that are offered through the program.
