Immokalee iTech Now Offers Bachelor Degrees - Free Tuition For High School Students
IMMOKALEE, FL. -- Edison State College and Immokalee Technical Center (iTECH) have partnered to offer college courses leading to an Associate or Bachelor degree from Edison State College, right in Immokalee.
The partnership began fall 2009 with two courses offered at the iTECH Collegiate Center, Psychology and English I, serving a total of 24 students. Based on inquiries received during the course of the fall semester, Edison has now doubled its course offerings for spring 2010, offering 4 additional courses with a potential to serve 80 to 100 students.
An added benefit of the partnership is the opportunity for Immokalee High School students to dual enroll taking courses for college credit while still in high school. High school students who dual enroll in Edison State College courses at the iTECH Collegiate Center do not pay fees or tuition. High school students wishing to register for courses at iTECH Collegiate Center may do so by contacting their high school guidance counselor.
Adult students pay Edison State College fees and tuition, a bargain compared to other institutions.
Spring 2010 courses are offered from Monday through Thursday and meet once per week from 6:00 - 8:40 p.m. The course schedule is as follows: Monday - Human Growth & Development; Tuesday - US History to 1865; Wednesday - Composition I; Thursday - College Success Skills.
