What Is Dual Enrollment?
Dual enrollment means that a high school student attends a college class at the high school campus.
· Dual enrollment allows students to earn ‘dual credit’. ‘Dual credit’ refers to students who earn academic credits at two institutions -- their high school and a college or university that participates in dual enrollment programs.
Why Should I Consider Dual Enrollment?
There are several reasons why high school students should work with their parents and school to participate in dual enrollment programs. These benefits include:
- Experiencing college courses with the support of high school teachers.
- Accelerate college completion, which may reduce total student debt for college graduates.
- Save money on tuition costs, which may reduce total student debt for college graduates.
- The dual enrollment classes high school students take may transfer to higher education institutions, depending upon the school
Where Is Dual Enrollment Offered?
