What is Dual Enrollment?

Dual enrollment provides the opportunity for students to receive college and high school credit for the same course at the same time. Students enrolled in dual enrollment courses get a head start on their college education and save money while taking rigorous college courses. Once a student has been accepted into the dual enrollment program and successfully completes a course, the student is recognized as an accepted student to that university waiving any future application fees to that university. Dual enrollment courses appear on the DCHS transcript as well as the university’s transcript.

DCHS has partnered with accredited universities; therefore, these university credits are likely to transfer to other colleges and universities. However, parents and students are encouraged to contact colleges and universities, other than those that have partnership with DCHS, to verify and ensure the transfer of credits before enrolling in a dual enrollment course.

Students interested in taking dual enrollment courses can contact the Dean of Students for more information.


Cost and fees vary between courses and educational institutions.
Students register and pay for courses directly through the college or university.
