Dual Enrollment-General Information

Dual Enrollment (DE) allows qualified students to enroll in college courses through local and state colleges and universities while still in high school. Credit earned through DE can be used towards fulfillment of a high school graduation requirement and can also be used as college credit. Students who qualify may enroll in a college course, and the tuition and textbook cost is waived. No transportation is available. Students can only take courses after regular school hours, in addition to the courses they are enrolled in at their high school. In order to qualify for dual enrollment, students must be entering or be in grade 10, grade 11, or grade 12, must have a 3.0 unweighted grade point average (GPA), and meet all the college/university criteria for admission. All M-DCPS senior high schools offer DE opportunities.
