College Express offers dual credit to over 400 high school juniors and seniors, 16–18 years old, in 15 CTE areas that lead to associate degrees or certificates. Optimally, a high school student enters the program as a junior and attends classes at DACC for 1½ hours each day. At the end of four semesters, a student may have earned 12–16 college credits.
College Express courses are held weekdays on the DACC campus. Tuition, fees, books, and most transportation costs are FREE to the students/families; high school districts pay these expenses for the students.
College Express' mission is to encourage high school completion, increase postsecondary degree attainment, and provide a skilled workforce.
