What is Dual Enrollment?
Dual Enrollment is an opportunity for eligible high school students to earn lower-division college credit during their regular high school classes. The credits students earn through dual enrollment are treated the same as regular college credit, i.e. they can be transferred to other Maricopa Community Colleges, Arizona’s state universities, and even some out-of-state colleges. Students will be establishing a college academic record and will be required to report such enrollment to future colleges or universities.
Higley Unified School District partners with Chandler-Gilbert Community College to offer Dual Enrollment credit for academic and occupational classes.
For the 2020-2021 year, the in state, in county tuition rate is $85 per credit hour. There is also a $15 registration fee once per semester for each community college the student does dual enrollment through. (Tuition is subject to change)
What to expect from Dual EnrollmentDual Enrollment courses are held on high school campuses and are taught by high school instructors who have met community college hiring qualifications. Through Dual Enrollment we strive to ease the transition from high school to college and to increase the number of college-bound high school students in our community.Dual enrollment students receive a grade and credit for work completed throughout the year. These credits usually transfer to your college of choice as direct course equivalents. Chandler-Gilbert Community College and the Maricopa County Community Colleges District have agreements with the three Arizona state universities, as well as many out-of-state colleges, to accept dual enrollment class credit. Students should confirm credit transfer policies with the college/university of their choice for the most up-to-date information.
