dual enrollment

Dual Enrollment is a program that provides funding for students to take approved college-level coursework for credit towards both high school and college graduation requirements.  Because students are enrolled simultaneously at their DE college and BCA, students are expected to maintain a high level of academic discipline and accountability to ensure success in the Dual Enrollment Program. 

Why take DE courses?   

  • Get a jump-start earning college credit while enriching your high school experience.  

  • Take courses that are academically challenging while learning to navigate a college level environment. 

What are the eligibility requirements to participate in Dual Enrollment?   

11th and 12th grade students who meet all eligibility requirements and submit all paperwork by the set deadlines may take dual enrollment courses. See current eligibility requirements below: 

  • Completion of all application requirements by the deadline every semester of participation 

  • Acceptance to the dual enrollment institution- each college sets its own admission standards, including GPA and minimum test score requirements, for acceptance to the dual enrollment program 

  • Minimum 3.0 GPA and a B average in the prerequisite course 

  • Attendance at DE/AP night, individual BCA advisement meeting, or prior participation in DE program at BCA 

  • No BCA scheduling conflicts 

Will my DE credits transfer?  

  • Know your transfer equivalences for colleges/universities AND majors. Not every school takes DE credits.  

  • It is the responsibility of students & parents to ensure DE courses transfer to the students’ college or university of choice.
