Dual Enrollment, Transitions to College

Dual enrollment — when a high school student is enrolled in both high school and college at the same time.

High-quality dual enrollment – is designed along pathways that lead to certificates and degrees of value, includes embedded student supports, and where students who are underrepresented in higher education or who may not otherwise go to college, find success and belonging.

Dual enrollment provides an introduction to higher education for historically underserved students and their families. It can provide structured onboarding into college, extending and amplifying the impact of guided pathways, a national reform movement to redesign the community college experience from the student’s perspective.
