Juniata College offers a dual-enrollment program for high school students from Huntingdon County and the surrounding area. Eligible high school juniors and seniors may take one course per semester (maximum of 4 courses) at a reduced tuition rate (currently $100 per credit hour), or at no cost for students who are eligible for free or reduced lunch at their high school.

Student eligibility and readiness for college-level course work is determined by their high school guidance counselor or instructional supervisor. All College policies regarding course registration and tuition and fees are applied. Tuition does not include fees for labs, field trips, supplies, books, or other incidentals.

Course Registration:
To see what courses are available in an upcoming semester, visit the online Class Schedule. High school students must meet all required course requisites and are not permitted to register for First-Year Composition or Seminar courses, Internships, Credit by Exam courses, or Independent Study credits.
 
To submit a registration request, complete the online Visiting Student Registration Form. Registration depends on course availability after Juniata full-time students have registered for classes, and will occur in early August for Fall Semester and December for Spring Semester.
 
Orientation:

Shortly before the beginning of your first semester at Juniata, you will receive an invitation for a dual-enrollment orientation session.

Drop/Add Period:

The Drop/Add period starts on the first day of each semester and continues for the first seven business days of that semester.

When you drop a course it will not appear on your Juniata transcript, as if you were never registered for it. If you wish to drop the course in which you are registered, and add another course instead if desired, contact your high school guidance counselor. Do not simply stop attending classes! If you do not officially drop the course, you will receive a final grade of F for the course.

Course Withdrawal: 

You may withdraw from a course starting whenever the drop/add period concludes until noon on the last day of classes (NOT the last day of final exams), unless your instructor lists a different deadline on the course syllabus.

Speak with your high school guidance counselor before withdrawing from a course. Course withdrawals are not calculated in the cumulative GPA. Withdrawals will be considered complete when they are filed with the Registrar's Office, with all required approvals, by the stated deadline.  Students who do not complete the withdrawal process will receive the grade currently earned at the time the course instructor submits final grades.
