Why do students take dual enrollment classes?

The majority of students participate in dual enrollment to reduce time to complete their college degree and to save money. Others desire the increased academic rigor of dual enrollment classes and want to become familiar with the expectations of college-level coursework.

What are the different dual enrollment opportunities and their benefits?

Dual enrollment opportunities vary at schools across the Commonwealth. There are four major opportunities – course work, Passport, Uniform Certificate of General Studies (UCGS), and Associate Degrees. Knowing what options are available at your school can help guide your choices.

Dual Enrollment and AP/Cambridge/IB Courses – What is the best choice?

Across Virginia, schools offer different types of courses through which students may earn college credits. The dual enrollment opportunities are based on a partnership between a high school and a 2-year college. The AP/Cambridge/IB courses are nationally defined courses and examination that are then evaluated by the colleges and universities for credits. Understanding your options and making informed decisions can maximize your earning potential.
