What is Dual Enrollment?
Dual Enrollment provides high school students with the opportunity to take college-level courses and earn credit toward both a high school diploma and a college degree.
- Available for all high school grade levels 10-12 (*10th graders can only start with CTAE dual enrollment classes)
- Once approved, may enroll full or part-time in approved credit-bearing college courses
- Courses may be taken before, during, or after regular school hours on the college campus, online, or at WCHS
- No charge for tuition, mandatory fees, and required books, providing a huge cost savings for parents and students. Exceptions may be lab fees.
Advantages and Benefits
- Provides students with an easy transition and an early start to their college careers
- Earning college credits while still in high school may enable students to graduate early and/or possibly even earn an associate degree, diploma or certificate
- Helps students adjust to certain aspects of the college experience (e.g., classes, coursework, instruction, being on a college campus) so the transition from high school to college may be easier
- Flexible scheduling opportunities with classes and access to the college’s resources and amenities
- College tuition and expenses are fully or mostly paid, which saves the parents/students money and time
- Participating in a dual enrollment program demonstrates a student’s ability to handle more difficult coursework which is something college admissions officers may look upon favorably during admissions and recruiting
