Dual Enrollment

COLLEGE CLASSES WHILE IN HIGH SCHOOL

The Dual Enrollment (DE) program allows students to take college classes while in high school at no cost to the high school student to earn college credit plus high school credit and get exposure to rigor of college. Dual Enrollment helps student get a “jump start” on postsecondary education, an advantage for students who want to get a head start on a college degree with tuition savings.
