What is Dual Enrollment?

Dual enrollment programs are collaborative efforts between high schools and colleges in which high school students are permitted to enroll in and earn credit for successfully completing college courses. This means that high school students earn credit for successfully completing college courses and concurrently earn credit toward the requirements of their high school diploma. These courses may be taught on the college campus, the high school campus or fully online.

What are the Benefits of Dual Enrollment Programs?

Students involved in the program may jump start their college experience and accelerate their college education by accumulating transferable college credits. Students are challenged intellectually and academically and are more likely to continue their education beyond high school. Another benefit is that students have access to a college education without interrupting normal high school activities.
