Dual Enrollment for Students in High School


High achieving high school students can be approved, while still in high school, to begin earning college credit. This can assist students through the College transition early, with great support. It also allows students to earn up to a full term of equivalent college credit while still in high school, giving them a distinct advantage when beginning a full-time college curriculum.

With high school approval, students can be released for part of the day to attend and earn college credits during their junior and senior years of high school. Students interested in Dual Enrollment should:

  1. Schedule an appointment for a planning conference with a high school guidance counselor. The student must attend this conference along with a parent to discuss the student’s options, outline expectations and complete the Dual Enrollment Application.
