High School Parallel Enrollment

Southside Academy high school student

The High School Parallel Enrollment program is designed for high school students who want to take courses at Towson for college credit. Students in the program enroll in regular college-level courses at Towson during the summer, fall or spring terms and attend class alongside other college students. College credit is earned for any courses completed, and will be posted to a Towson University transcript. Students may take any TU course, provided the prerequisites have been met.

Please note that admission to the Parallel Enrollment program does not guarantee later admission to Towson as a degree-seeking student.

Tuition and Fees

Students participating in the High School Parallel Enrollment program are responsible for paying the standard tuition and fee rates. Current rates are available from the Bursar's Office.
