How Early College Dual Enrollment Program Works
Early College programs allow you to earn high school and college credit simultaneously. Dual enrollment provides you with the unique opportunity to work toward a high school diploma and a college certificate or degree at the same time, and it's open to students from all school districts and home schools.
As long as students are enrolled in the program tuition, fees and books are free (some exceptions apply). You'll also have access to guidance and support from an early college advisor.
