Students still attending high school can explore the dual enrollment option.  In addition, Thiel began the College in the High School option for participating schools in the fall of 2017.  Information on this exciting program is listed below.  Also below, you can learn what to do next in the college search using our timeline.

College in High School Program

Thiel College is pleased to partner with local high schools in awarding college credit for certain courses that may be taken on the high school campus and taught by qualified high school teachers. By supporting the teaching of freshman college-level courses in the high school, Thiel College collaborates with the high school faculty and students and provides an opportunity for students to earn college credits on the high school campus.

Students may register for one or more of the approved courses through their high school and, upon successful completion of the course (a grade of C- or higher), receive college credit from Thiel College.
