41 Dual Enrollment Students Receive Professional Certificates at PCCC’s Commencement 2015
















Dual Enrollment @ PCCC

Dual Enrollment is a program that offers qualified high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to take college-level courses and earn college credits while still in high school.

Through Dual Enrollment, students who excel will receive additional academic stimulation and an early start on their college career, while saving money on the cost of a college education.

Unlike Advanced Placement (AP) courses, students obtain actual college credit which is based upon progress throughout the course and course grade as opposed to a single score on a standardized examination Courses

Some Benefits of Dual Enrollment

  • Encourages students to pursue a college education
  • Enriches the academic experience for high-achieving students
  • Helps students transition smoothly from high school to college
  • Saves money on the cost of a college education
  • Enables students to achieve a degree faster
