The Campus Experience

Dual Enrollment Campus Experience students register for current courses held on our main campus (including online). These courses are regular college classes with full-time students enrolled. If you're participating in the Dual Enrollment Program, you will either be given leave from your high school (to attend these classes during the regular school day) or attend in the evening and/or online.

There is no application fee for Dual Enrollment. If you are interested in learning more about this program, please fill out our application.
