Why Dual Enrollment?
According to the U.S. Department of Education, college credits earned prior to high school graduation reduce the average time-to-degree and increase the likelihood of graduation. For parents, it’s an opportunity to reduce future college expenses by shortening the time to college graduation.
Dual Enrollment programs provide high school students a unique opportunity to jump-start their college career.
