Dual Enrollment Fact Sheet
Dual or concurrent enrollment programs are innovative partnerships between public schools and local community colleges that allow high school students to earn both high school and college credit as part of an alternative education option.
What should students and/or parents need to know before participating in dual enrollment?
Dual enrollment offers many benefits, such as a chance to begin college early while earning high school and college credit, master college level coursework, and learn to navigate the college environment. However, students and parents should know the following:
- The grades earned in dual enrollment courses will be part of the student’s CCUSD permanent record and college transcript. Poor grades in dual enrollment courses can hurt students’ chances of receiving financial aid as well as their eligibility to enroll in a four-year college or university.
- Students might be responsible for expenses such as textbooks and supplies, transportation to and from campus, and meals while attending courses at the campus.
- Students interested in dual enrollment should speak with their CCHS counselor prior to enrolling to determine if the program is right for them.
- Students may register for approved courses as recommended by their high school counselor and principal.
- All coursework taken becomes a permanent part of the student’s college academic history. Grades received or excessive drops have implications for future status involving financial assistance, athletic eligibility, academic standing, etc.
- Complete prerequisites and arrange for testing, if necessary.
- Students are responsible for reviewing and abiding by all academic and student policies as listed in the College Classes and in the college’s Schedule of Classes.
- Students are required to meet all academic deadlines of the college class.
STUDENT ENROLLMENT AT THE COLLEGE
Students need to apply to the college offering the class and electronically submit their K-12 enrollment form to their counselor for approval. If the enrollment form requests the principal’s permission, list Dr. Tarvyd ([email protected]) as the principal as she is over Curriculum & Instruction.
