WHAT IS DUAL ENROLLMENT?
Dual Enrollment is an opportunity for eligible high school students to earn lower-division college credit during their regular high school classes. The credits students earn through Dual Enrollment are treated the same as regular college credit (i.e. they can be transferred to other Maricopa Community Colleges, Arizona’s state universities, and even some out-of-state colleges). Students will be establishing a college academic record and will be required to report such enrollment to future colleges or universities.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AP AND DUAL ENROLLMENT?
Dual Enrollment isn’t the same as AP credit. A student can spend the whole year in an AP class, but receiving college credit is dependent upon earning an adequate score on the AP test at the end of the year. The requirements to get college credit on these tests are sometimes higher than what the student may expect. Dual Enrollment classes are based on the grade the student receives in the class; if they pass (usually with a grade of C or better), they get college credit.
HOW MUCH DOES DUAL ENROLLMENT COST?
The in-county tuition rate is $97 per credit hour. There are additional charges for students classified as out-of-state. There also is a $15 registration fee once per semester for each community college through which the student does Dual Enrollment. (Tuition is subject to change.) For example, a 3-credit college class will cost $306.
