Earning College Credit While in High School; Transferable Dual Enrollment Credit

Opportunities exist for students at our three high schools and Dowell J. Howard Center to earn transferable college credit for approved college-level courses. Through a partnership with both Lord Fairfax Community College and Shenandoah University, students may earn college credit while in high school. Dual Enrollment course offerings vary at each site based on teacher credentials. Dual Enrollment courses are generally transferable to Virginia community colleges as well as state universities. However, students should check with their prospective colleges and/or individual college programs to verify that the college will accept dual enrollment credit. These dual enrolled courses offer college-level material. Students should expect a challenging curriculum and extensive assignments, mirroring those opportunities found in the respective college courses taken on campus. Dual enrollment credit taken in our high schools is offered at a reduced cost. Students will be responsible for their own college tuition.
