Dual Enrollment

Dual enrollment programs introduce high school students to college-level work, by allowing them to take certain college courses along with their regular high school classes. 
Courses can be at a basic skill level (often intro-level English or Math), provide advanced academic work, or involve vocational or technical education. Students in dual enrollment programs – considered “special admit” students – must fulfill their required high school hours while taking any pre-college courses.
The purpose behind dual enrollment programs is to give students knowledge and skills - a pathway – that encourages them to continue on a postsecondary journey.
Did you know...Some schools have used the term “concurrent enrollment” instead of dual enrollment. Technically, they are interchangeable; however, dual enrollment is the preferred term and the one used in the California Education Code.
