Dual Enrollment Overview: Plus tips to convince your parents!

Dual Enrollment allows qualified public, private, and home education students in the 10th, 11th, and 12th grades to enroll in select college and vocational credit courses offered by EFSC.

With Dual Enrollment, the college credits you earn count toward both a college degree or certificate and a high school diploma. We've got the Early College Program to earn an A.A., with two- and three-year tracks. High school seniors can even take their senior year courses to earn their H.S. diploma at EFSC through our Early Admission Program, which still allows them to take part in sports and clubs at their high school.

Want to help your parents see the cost saving advantages of dual enrollment? Direct them to our Parent Preview page, which includes info about special events for parents and guardians.
