Boyce College expands online options for high schoolers in light of COVID-19

By SBTS Communications

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (BP) -- Boyce College is providing additional online curriculum to support high school students who are no longer receiving classroom instruction due to the coronavirus Pandemic, announced Dustin Bruce, dean of Boyce College, March 20.

The dual enrollment program at Boyce College allows high school students to earn transferable college credit hours, while finishing their high school degrees. The program is open to students 15 years old and older. The dual credit eight-week courses will be available online beginning March 30 through the college's website.

"By increasing our dual enrollment options and reducing our price, my hope is that Boyce College can provide high school students with an opportunity to redeem their unexpected downtime this spring," said Bruce. "While none of us would have chosen the current situation we are in, students can get a jump start on college through our expanded offerings and save money in the process."

Students can earn three credits for each course. On March 30, World History and Introduction to Philosophy will begin. Hermeneutics, Introduction to Biblical Counseling, Introduction to Christian Missions, Personal Evangelism, and Introduction to Psychology begin on April 6. Students can study Public Speaking and Introduction to Business starting April 13.

To take advantage of these expanded dual enrollment opportunities, students can begin a streamlined application process here. Tuition rates have been reduced from $348 to $250 per course to help accommodate family budgets during these challenging times.
