Dual Enrollment for High School Students

Double the credit. Half the time. Zero the tuition*.

Dual Enrollment 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! Students may choose to enroll fully into a degree, diploma, or technical certificate of credit (TCC) program, or they may choose to just take a few courses. Courses are taught on college campuses, some high school campuses, online and hybrid (a blend of online and in-person classes).

Starting in 10th grade, students are eligible to take occupational or CTAE courses through Dual Enrollment funding. Junior and senior level (11th and 12th grade) students are eligible to take core/general education, as well as occupational courses. Financial Aid is available for students who meet the requirements. Students who are not eligible for Financial Aid to cover their Dual Enrollment courses are responsible for paying all tuition and any required fees. *Additional program-specific fees for occupational courses may be charged.
