Welcome to Dual Enrollment 2022-2023
Welcome to Perry High School and Dual Enrollment! We are excited about the upcoming year and all the college credit classes we offer to Perry students.
Chandler Gilbert Community College (CGCC) partners with East Valley high schools to offer Dual Enrollment (DE) credit for academic and occupational classes. Dual Enrollment courses are held on the Perry campus and are taught by our high school instructors who have met community college qualifications. Students earn college credits at the same time as they earn their high school credits. With Dual Enrollment credit offerings, we strive to ease the transition from high school to college, to increase the number of college-bound students in our community, and enable our students to earn community college credits while in high school.
One of the ten Maricopa Community Colleges, Chandler-Gilbert Community College, is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) and is a member of the North Central Association (NCA).
For high school students, Dual Enrollment:
- Eliminates potential duplication of advanced/honors high school courses and introductory/survey college courses.
- Provides access to CGCC libraries, as well as remote library access for research databases.
- Allows students to complete credits that apply towards their general education requirements, letting them focus on courses within their major area of study when they enroll at a university.
- Provides a cost-effective head start on a college education, enabling students to earn a four-year degree in as little as three years.
- Allows students to know how their college credits will transfer (instead of the transferability being dependent on an advanced placement test score).
For high schools, Dual Enrollment:
Opens a dialogue and enhances collaboration between the high school and the community college faculty.
Check out the The Course Equivalency Guide (CEG) on the AZ Transfer link. It shows how courses transfer from community college to ASU, NAU and U of A.**Be aware that the transferability of a course does not indicate how the course will apply to meet requirements or specific bachelor's degrees.
- Improves high school retention and graduation rates. For college-bound students, this impact is most evident during the student’s senior year when they elect to remain on the high school campus to earn Dual Enrollment college credit rather than opt for early dismissal.
- Encourages students to develop themselves academically due to prerequisites/skills needed for entrance into certain college classes.
- Expands the high school curriculum by delivering courses via the community college curriculum that high schools might not offer.
- Encourages professional growth among high school teachers, as they must earn a master's degree in a major field of study to meet the criteria to teach a community college class.
- Provides an opportunity for high school Dual Enrollment faculty to become adjunct faculty for the community college
