Academic Dual Enrollment

Dual enrollment is an articulated acceleration mechanism open to secondary students who are attending public high school. To enroll in dual enrollment academic courses, students must demonstrate a readiness to successfully complete college-level course work and have attained a qualifying grade point average. In order to determine the high school equivalency and the high school credit awarded for postsecondary courses completed through dual enrollment, please refer to the most current Dual Enrollment Equivalency List. The district must weigh college-level dual enrollment courses the same as Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and Advanced International Certification of Education courses when grade point averages are calculated. All high schools must follow the Dual Enrollment master scheduling protocols in order to ensure the capturing of Dual Enrollment data for students participating in both on the high school campus and off high school campus dual enrollment courses.
