Dual Enrollment

  • A staff member adjusts a student's graduation regaliaOmaha Public Schools partners with Metropolitan Community College (MCC), University of Nebraska Omaha (UNO), and Midland University to provide high school students the opportunity to take more than 40 college-credit courses through Dual Enrollment. Dual Enrollment courses are taught by college-approved high school teachers and are generally offered at a lower cost than traditional college courses. Students gain exposure to the academic challenges of college within the supports of the high school environment. The courses are taught at a student's high school or the Career Center.  


    Students in grades nine through 12 can participate in Dual Enrollment as long as all eligibility requirements are met. Participating in Dual Enrollment helps students prepare for college and workforce success and increases the chances that a student will complete college. 


    Generally, college credit earned in dual enrollment courses will transfer to a different college as elective credit. Students need to earn a grade of “C” or higher for the credit to be transferable.


    Students who qualify for Free and Reduced Meals can apply for the Access College Early (ACE) Scholarship. The ACE Scholarship covers three dual enrollment courses in 2021-2022.


    For a list of all available courses, please check with your student's high school.
