What is Dual Enrollment?

Dual enrollment is an educational practice that enables a high school student to enroll in and complete credit-bearing college courses. Successfully completing these courses provides a student with both college and high school credits. Some courses are taught by qualified high school faculty and some are taught by SMCCD faculty.
