PIT part­ners with county tech schools for trans­fer pro­gram

Daily Times (Primos, PA) - - NEWS -

NETHER PROV­I­DENCE » Penn­syl­va­nia In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy (PIT) has teamed up with Delaware County Tech­ni­cal High Schools (DCTS) a depart­ment of the Delaware County In­ter­me­di­ate Unit (DCIU) to cre­ate a trans­fer agree­ment that will al­low el­i­gi­ble high school stu­dents to trans­fer cred­its earned at DCTS to PIT for col­lege credit. For­mer stu­dents of DCTS can have their high school tran­scripts eval­u­ated now for classes start­ing Oct. 9.

This agree­ment sup­ports stu­dents who at­tend DCTS, and wish to con­tinue learn­ing and earn a de­gree in their area of in­ter­est. PIT is grant­ing up to 18 cred­its to qual­i­fied DCTS stu­dents. Stu­dents ben­e­fit by get­ting a jump start in col­lege by re­ceiv­ing trans­fer credit sav­ing the stu­dent time and money.

“This out­stand­ing new part­ner­ship takes ad­van­tage of the ad­vanced tech­ni­cal skills DCTS teaches at the high school level and pro­vides par­tic­i­pants the op­por­tu­nity to grad­u­ate from P.I.T. sooner and to earn sig­nif­i­cant sav­ings over our al­ready af­ford­able tu­ition,” said PIT Vice Pres­i­dent Jack Ba­con.

The Penn­syl­va­nia In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy is a Mid­dle-States ac­cred­ited, pri­vate, non­profit, two-year col­lege of­fer­ing as­so­ciate de­grees in health­care, busi­ness, com­puter sci­ence, engi­neer­ing, be­hav­ioral health, crim­i­nal jus­tice, prac­ti­cal nurs­ing, and phys­i­cal ther­apy as­sis­tant. PIT is a smaller, more per­sonal al­ter­na­tive to com­mu­nity col­lege for trans­fer stu­dents and stu­dents who are pur­su­ing a spe­cial­ized cer­tifi­cate pro­gram. PIT has strong trans­fer agree­ments with larger uni­ver­si­ties in the area that al­low stu­dents to trans­fer smoothly into a bach­e­lor de­gree pro­gram.
