HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -
A Midstate college is offering a unique way to earn credits: for free.
Messiah College has partnered with Downey Elementary in Harrisburg. The program offers free college classes for adults who can't afford them or who didn't have the chance academically to go to college out of high school.
Karla DeJesus used the program to go back to school and will graduate from Messiah in December.
"It's a win-win," DeJesus said.
Students earn three college credit per semester and child care is even provided while classes are in session.
