What is Dual Enrollment?
The W welcomes the opportunity to help high school students get a jump start on their college education while they are still in high school. Dual enrollment allows you to see what a college classroom is like. Most dual enrollment students take freshman level courses such as Psychology, English Composition, Psychology, and more. These courses traditionally transfer to any other college or university easily! Graduating from high school with some college courses under your belt is sure to impress.
What is Dual Credit?
Would you like to earn college AND high school credit at the same time? Speak with your high school about the opportunity to count your W courses for high school graduation credit. Only students with an approved agreement between The W and their school system may participate in dual credit.
The W offers a 2/3 tuition scholarship for up to 6 hours (2 courses) for dual enrollment/dual credit students. These awards are automatic and are applied to your account once you’ve been admitted and signed up for classes. At $275.59 per class, plus the cost of textbooks, that is quite a deal!
