Early College Credit
Dual enrollment programs offer high school students opportunities to take tuition-free college courses on a high school or college campus. These programs offer challenging curriculum, exposure to college environments and an opportunity to earn college units while still in high school.
High school students earn college units for a CTE course that has been validated by college faculty as equivalent to their college course. Units are awarded after a student successfully completes the high school CTE course and completes the community college articulation process. Units are posted to their college transcript as "Credit by Exam".
