Resources For Students & Families


Choosing Dual Enrollment gives students the opportunity to experience the academic rigor of college while earning credits toward a future degree. It also demonstrates a more intense course load on transcripts and improves overall college-readiness, all while doing so at a more affordable cost. Stay on track with the information and resources listed below or check out our Dual Enrollment playlist of videos to help you get started.

Support Services
Adapting to the workload that a college-level course produces can be challenging at first, so we encourage parents to help students practice time-management skills and teach them how to advocate for themselves so they know to speak up if they need help. Dual Enrollees also have access to any of our Student Services such as our Learning Center and Library.

Dual Enrollment Disability Services
Disability Services offers a variety of support and guidance to both prospective and current students with disabilities. We encourage academically qualified students with disabilities to take advantage of our educational programs and activities. Click here to learn more.
