Have questions? FAQ's
What is the difference between dual enrollment and AP? Does my student have to do both to get the college credit?
Both options offer students the chance to receive college credit while attending high school. They are separate programs, both with advantages for your student.
Dual enrollment credit will transfer to any in-state university, if the student passes the class with a C or better. It is recommended that you visit the website of any college or university your student is interested in attending to research their specific credit transfer policies. For a complete listing of universities accepting dual enrollment credit, please see www.maricopa.edu/transfer.
AP credit will transfer to many universities across the country. The student must pass with a qualifying grade in order for the credit to be accepted, and policies vary from institution to institution. It is recommended that you visit the website of any college or university your student is interested in attending to research their specific credit transfer policies.
We encourage families to discuss both options thoroughly, as each student’s situation is different. Dual credit requires an upfront financial investment larger than the AP test, but may offer students with “test anxiety” a more comfortable environment to earn the credit. AP is more widely accepted across the country and is a less expensive alternative.
