Students who take dual enrollment classes end up saving hundreds or thousands of dollars. The first two classes (up to 6 credits) are totally free and then students pay reduced tuition (50% of regular tuition). Dual Enrollment students are able to learn from the same mistakes that regular college students make without it costing them hundreds or thousands of dollars.
Dual Enrollment students start their full-time college careers with credits already earned. Generally, dual enrollment students have to spend less time working on general education classes and can begin their specific degree requirements sooner.
Students who participate in dual enrollment have a smoother transition to college because they are familiar with the college experience.
