Dual enrollment programs offer high school students credit toward a high school diploma and college credit toward a certificate or degree. If you wish to get a head start on your college career, visit your high school counselor or principal to learn about the options available to you.

It is never too early to start preparing for college. Dual enrollment helps high school students maximize their time by earning college credit while still in high school.
