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 their enrollment to future colleges/universities.
What to expect from Dual Enrollment
Dual 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.
