Dual Enrollment allows the Community College campus to form a partnership with local K-12 districts that enables high school students (9th to 12th) to take a college class at their high school for college credit. The high school student will be awarded both college credits and high school credit for the single course. Students are eligible for Dual Enrollment provided they complete the admission application online and have approval from the high school principal or their designee.
Note: Not all high schools offer the opportunity for students to take Dual Enrollment classes.Students must first check with their high school counselor to determine if a Dual Enrollment class is offered at their campus.
