Sussex Technical School District and Widener University announced Nov. 9 that they will partner to bring new higher education course offerings to high school students in Sussex County, central Delaware and the region.
Sussex Tech will be the sole-source provider for Widener University coursework in the region. Beginning in the fall of 2013, interested students will have the opportunity to enroll in and complete college courses during their junior and senior years of high school.
These dual credit courses are fully accredited, and upon successful completion, students will be awarded both Sussex Technical High School and Widener University credits. Upon graduation from high school, they can either apply to Widener University, where all courses are accepted, or transfer their credits to other institutions of higher learning upon that institution's acceptance of the transferrable credit.
