What is Dual Enrollment?
Dual Enrollment programs at DACC allow high school students to take college-level courses that will be used for high school credit and college credit. Even better, for most students those college credits are FREE!

Who is Eligible?
High school juniors and seniors may enroll in these programs with prior approval from their guidance counselors. Qualifications and tuition waivers are dependent upon the program selected, high school guidelines, and residency status.

What’s the Benefit?
One class may cost as much as $300 at a community college or more than $1000 at most state universities. Choosing Dual Enrollment courses and programs with FREE tuition while still in high school can save students and families as much as $6,000 or more in education expenses.

Guidelines to Keep in Mind:

  • Dual Enrollment courses are more rigorous than typical high school courses; course requirements, assignments, and timeframes will reflect the demands of a college-level course.
  • Dual Enrollment students are held to the same standards as traditional DACC college students. All students are expected to follow the DACC code for student conduct found in the Student Handbook.
  • Developmental courses do not earn college credit in Dual Enrollment programs.
  • Students are required to take any placement assessments and prerequisites necessary for the chosen college course. The college administers the ASSET and COMPASS placement assessment. ACT and SAT scores may be used, as well. A foreign-language assessment is required for enrollment in all foreign language courses above the entry-level DACC course.
