Learn About Free University Courses for High School Students at a ZOOM Workshop June 4

Fri, 05/29/2020 - 10:45am

Rockland - Interested high school students, their parents and high school counselors are invited to attend an information session about free University High School Aspiration courses available through UMA Rockland this fall. The session will be held via ZOOM web conferencing on Thursday, June 4 at 8:30AM.

According to URock's Director Deborah Meehan, "We expect to have a full range of course instructional methods for the fall term, from face-to-face in real time to fully online courses. We'll discuss the enrollment process through the ExplorEC website, course recommendations suitable for high school students, and how to get the most from the experience."
According to Meehan high school students typically take freshman level general education courses like communications, English, psychology and math. Students who are trying to qualify for competitive allied health programs often take biology, chemistry and/or anatomy and physiology. All of these courses are easily transferred to colleges and universities depending on the student's future plans.
High school students have the opportunity to earn both college and high school credit through free University courses. Working with counselors at the high schools, UMA staff and high school students determine suitable course offerings to give high school students an advantage.
Registration for this workshop is at https://forms.gle/8zZ5UngVcaiqXnwr5 and a ZOOM link will be sent.
