Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment is a unique opportunity to earn college credit while enrolled in high school.  There are many advantages to dual enrollment and we encourage participation for students for whom this opportunity is appropriate.  Although students who historically perform well in their academics also do well at the collegiate level, it is ultimately the right and responsibility of the student and their caregiver to decide if dual enrollment is appropriate. 

There are two types of dual enrollment:

Off Campus Dual Enrollment (formally known as advanced education):  students enroll independently from the highschool in college classes in which only college credit is earned.  Students must submit an approved Special Admit form to the college to enroll.

On Campus Dual Enrollment:  Students enroll in a college-level course during the high school course selection process in February.  The course is taught during the school day and is awarded high school and college credits.  Students complete the required college enrollment paperwork at the start of the new school year.  Click HERE to see the on-campus course offerings on FCUSD high school campuses for the 2023-2024 school year.


NOTE REGARDING DUAL ENROLLMENT COURSES:  College courses that are not taught on our FCUSD campuses are different from those taken on our campuses during the school day.   Community College classes, whether asynchronous or synchronous, not taught on our campuses, DO NOT RECEIVE HIGH SCHOOL CREDIT AND WILL NOT APPEAR ON THE HIGH SCHOOL TRANSCRIPT.

See chart below for further explanations regarding the difference between the two programs as well as how they compare to taking Advanced Placement courses.
