Dual Enrollment: A Decision the Whole Family Can Feel Good About

As a dual enrollment student, you can begin taking college classes in high school and earn a two-year college degree by the time you graduate or soon after. The courses you take count toward both your high school diploma and your college requirements. There are two options for you to pursue. In most cases, tuition and books are free.
