Dual Enrollment/Dual Credit Students
The dual enrollment/dual credit program is one that offers high school students the opportunity to take college-level courses while receiving high school credit for the same course. Dual enrollment is a great way to make the transition into a successful college experience. Depending on the school system, students can participate in dual enrollment while in grades 10, 11, or 12. Each school system has different policies regarding dual enrollment.
Two paths are offered for dual enrollment through academic transfer courses and career-technical programs. The academic transfer pathway is generally geared toward the student’s goal of earning a bachelor’s degree while the career-technical route is one that is focused on the attainment of a degree or certificate in a particular technical field.
