Shenandoah offers online opportunity for high school students

shenandoah universityShenandoah University has created a unique educational opportunity for high school seniors and high-performing juniors who are studying at home and wish to jump-start their college career.

Through the new Freshman Advanced Studies Track For High School Seniors, or F.A.S.Track, Shenandoah has created a condensed six-week spring term of online course offerings that are broadly transferable and meet general education requirements for most bachelor’s degrees. The courses are all online and are offered at a reduced cost—$250 per three-credit course compared to $900 per three-credit course.

F.A.S.Track classes run from April 14 through May 22, 2020. Registration closes Friday, April 10.

Courses are Introduction to Business, Introduction to Cybersecurity, Personal Finance, Composition, College Algebra, and Health Communication.

Students who enroll at Shenandoah in the fall 2020 term will receive a tuition credit for any of the F.A.S.Track courses completed (this includes Shenandoah students already admitted as freshmen for the fall 2020 term).

The program was created to provide high school students with an additional educational benefit while they’re studying at home due to school closures meant to stem the spread of COVID-19.
