HANNIBAL, NY — For Hannibal High School students looking to jumpstart their college education, there are many dual credit options available.

Eligible juniors and seniors can enroll in college-level courses that meet high school requirements, while also offering three to four college credits at the end of the class. All courses are offered free of charge to Hannibal High School students, helping to reduce the financial burden of higher education.

“The dual credit offerings are a wonderful opportunity for our students to enroll in challenging courses while earning college credits,” said Meredith Furlong, Executive Director of Hannibal High School. “Through Hannibal Central School District’s relationship with our higher education partners, students can experience the rigors of college at no cost.”

The district currently has dual credit agreements with Cayuga Community College, Onondaga Community College, Syracuse University, and SUNY Oswego, with 26 courses offered throughout the academic year.

Course offerings include SUPA forensics, sociology, personal finance, psychology, English and everything in between, and are taught in traditional classroom settings as well as via a distance learning option.

“With such a variety of dual credit courses, students can choose options that meet their needs and interests,” Furlong said. “The Hannibal City School District truly puts students first, and providing them with these innovative learning options helps us meet their individual learning needs.”
