Apply for dual enrollment

Read through the steps below, and reach out with any questions you might have.

"These courses helped me experience and explore many different classes and gain lots of knowledge not only of the course content, but also how I am as a student. When I did Dual Enrollment my senior year, I did not have a definite idea of what I wanted to do with my life. Having the opportunity to take college courses in high school helped me narrow down what I do and do not like and took me a step closer to figuring out what major I want to study."
