• Earn Credits Toward Your College in High School

    Rock Hill School District and York Technical College are pleased to announce a partnership designed to provide a highly advanced Engineering Technology program through dual enrollment.

    The program is for Rock Hill School District high school students and enables them to begin the York Tech engineering technology degree during their junior and senior years.

    11thgraders can start taking the courses if they meet the placement scores, pre-requisites and co-requisites.

    Students who follow the plan of study will be able to complete an Associate in Applied Science Degree within one year after high school graduation and potentially transition seamlessly to the workforce. Students who obtain one of the four associate degrees below also have the option to transfer to four-year institutions that offer 2+2 programs such as UNC-Charlotte to obtain a Bachelor in Science in Engineering Technology (BSET) or USC Upstate to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology Management.
