Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment is the overarching term used to describe college-credit programs/courses available to high school students in which the student earns credit for both their college and high school transcripts. 

There are two types of Dual Enrollment:

  • Concurrent Enrollment: taking a class taught at the high school for both college and high school credit
  • Early Start: taking a class taught at the college, on campus or online, for college credit

  • Requirements

    Area high school students, at least 16 years of age and are at Junior or Senior status, may enroll in any course and be charged one-half the regular per credit hour tuition, books and materials.

    A complete application includes the following components:

    • Complete Admissions Application – submit (mailed, delivered, or web) to the Admission Office, prior to or at the time of registration.
    • Printable Dual Enrollment Application
    • Immunizations records if taking 6 or more credits as an Early Start student
    • Placement test scores if registering for course(s) with pre-requisites. If not administered in the DCC ASC, scores must be sent to the DCC Admissions Office from the administering agency/college.
    • Letter of approval from High School Principal/Counselor if enrolling in a day course.

    High School students wanting to take a concurrent enrollment class through their high school must first be enrolled in the course through the high school and then complete application/registration paperwork for the dual enrollment program. Pre-requisites and/or placement/standardized test scores may be required. All dual enrollment students must complete enrollments by applicable deadlines to be enrolled. These dates change each semester and are available from the dual enrollment coordinator.
