Dual Enrollment

High School students (freshmen to seniors) may choose to take a class at a community college as a Dual Enrollment student. The class must be taken outside of regular school hours (8:30 am to 3:30 pm). Furthermore, the class cannot be used as one of the six classes required to be a full-time student according to Board Policy with one exception: during the 1st semester only, a senior student may use one college class as one of their high school classes. One semester college class will transfer to 10 high school credits. A student who wishes to put the college class on their high school transcript must submit an official college transcript to their counselor. The easiest method (and free) is for the student to request an electronic copy of the transcript be sent directly to their counselor’s email.

**After the counselor has approved the class, the college will email the parent asking them to approve their child’s Dual Enrollment application in total.

***After the student has enrolled and the college has received the counselor and parent approval, the student will be notified that they can now officially register for the class on the first day to register for Dual Enrollment students.
