Dual Enrollment FREE in 22-23 photo of students

Earn college credit while you are still in high school!  Dual enrollment provides eligible, college-ready high school students the opportunity to enroll in SCC courses.  The dual enrollment program courses include university transfer, technology and health sciences.  Students may join the dual enrollment program most anytime during their high school career.  The earlier a student joins, the more college credits he or she will earn towards their college degree. Interested students and parents are encouraged to contact their high school counselor or SCC Dual Enrollment Office for more information.

Dual enrollment* classes may be available at the SCC campus, online, or at the student’s high school and career/technology center.  Textbooks and other class materials are the student’s responsibility unless otherwise indicated by their home high school.
