Dual enrollment allows students to receive both high school and college credit for certain career/technical education courses taken through an institution while enrolled in high school. State has two programs. The Dual Enrollment program includes college courses offered on the campus of an accredited postsecondary institution and on a secondary school campus, and may include online courses.
The state has multiple programs. “Accelerated college credit programs” include Dual Credit, Two-plus-Two (CTE), Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate programs. Dual credit means awarding secondary and postsecondary credit for a course offered in a high school during regular school hours. In addition, the Expanded Options allows eligible students to enroll full-time or part-time in an eligible post-secondary institution.
Each district must either provide students in grades 9-12 with accelerated college credit programs related to English, math and science, or ensure students have online access to accelerated college credit programs in these subjects.
Unless otherwise noted, policies in this profile refer to the Expanded Options Program or the Dual Credit program.
