Dual/Concurrent Enrollment

How do Dual/Concurrent Courses benefit me?

• Explore possible technical careers or college majors at little or no cost to you.

• To save money.

• To discover if you are ready for college.

• To graduate from college early.

What are Dual and Concurrent Classes?

• Dual enrollment credit is given to students who complete college-level courses either online or in traditional college classes.  

• Concurrent enrollment courses are college courses taught by college approved high school faculty, as part of their duties.   These classes are taught in the high school and the college class is part of the high school schedule.

Benefits of Dual and Concurrent Enrollment

• Students earn both high school and college credit.

• Counts as one elective credit or core class towards high school graduation.

• High school students who take college courses subsequently perform better in college than those with no history of dual enrollment course taking.

• Students who earned college credits in dual enrollment and similar programs before high school graduation had a lower average time to degree - 4.25 years . . . 4.65 years.

• Reduces the cost of college to the student and their family.

• Career and technical students have documented skills to offer their employer and a head start on further training.

What will it cost?

Concurrent credit courses should have no cost to you.

The CCSD#1 BOCHES Board pays for tuition, fees and books for dual credit courses. Continued enrollment depends on the student receiving a minimum GPA of 2.0 in each class and completion of all enrolled courses.  

Things to consider before you register

• Am I at least 16 years of age?  

• Am I a junior or senior with high level academic capabilities?

• Do I have current ACT scores or will I need to take the WWCC COMPASS assessment?

• Will my high school instructor in this content area recommend me for a college course?

• Will I be able to meet all my high school requirements?

• Do I have time for a college course and am I willing to do the homework?

• Do I realize college classes will take a greater time commitment and my outside activities cannot interfere?

• Do I understand that the grade I earn in this class will go on my permanent college transcript and high school transcript?

• Do I understand that I am responsible for researching transfer issues prior to enrolling in college classes? Colleges have varying policies on the acceptance of college credit earned while a student is still in high school.
