Dual Enrollment

All dual enrollment classes are taught by college-qualified faculty. College credit and possible high school credit is awarded when you successfully complete the course. College credit earned through dual enrollment typically transfers to other institutions of higher education. A dual-enrollment class may be taken in various ways. You can register to take a dual-enrollment class on CSCC’s campus, at your high school or through an online/video course delivery. If you take a dual enrollment course, you’re responsible for paying CSCC tuition for the course. As a dual-enrollment student, you may qualify for financial assistance.
