Parent Information

Dual enrollment courses have been a feature in South Carolina high schools since 1972. These courses provide an avenue through which highly-talented high school students can earn college credit while simultaneously meeting high school graduation requirements. Participation in either of these programs will significantly decrease college costs, prepare students for advanced-level college work, and improve their understanding of the demands of college.  Students also benefit from an expanded set of curricular offerings.
