Dual Enrollment

  • Dual Enrollment allows academically talented students to earn college credit while still in high school. The courses are taught at area high schools by its own staff who have been selected to be adjunct faculty. 

    Besides costing less than 1/4 of actual tuition and fees for the same course at the partner institution, Dual Enrollment provides the opportunity to earn college credit with a grade, while still in high school.  High school students can demonstrate to competitive universities and scholarship committees that they have succeeded at a high level in a rigorous, accredited college course. With college credits earned in high school, new college students have more time to pursue college courses for a double major, graduate from college early, or slightly decrease their course-load.
