What is Dual Enrollment?
Dual Enrollment is a program that allows qualified high school students to maximize their education and career training by taking courses that earn college and high school credit at the same time!
Some students may choose to enroll fully into a degree, diploma or technical certificate of credit program, or they may choose to just take a few courses. Participating in the Dual Enrollment program is a great incentive for high school students to get ahead on their college coursework!
