Dual Enrollment/Credit is a program which allows high school juniors and seniors meeting the requirements set forth to enroll in a college course prior to high school graduation, giving them first hand exposure to the requirements of college-level work while gaining high school and college credit simultaneously.
· By Co-Lin at the Wesson campus, Natchez campus, or Simpson County Center. Students are charged full tuition.
· At an approved dual enrollment/credit high school. Students are charged half tuition.
Participating Students must have (provided by High School Counselor):

· An increase in the number of education options
· Savings in time and money for postsecondary courses leading to a degree
· Dual Enrollment/Credit, with its college-credit-bearing component, is seen as a way to encourage students who might otherwise “slack-off” to engage in demanding coursework during the final year of high school
· Greater collaboration between high school and college faculty and programs
· Pathways for students to move “seamlessly” between the K-12 and postsecondary systems
· Young people can begin to understand what will be expected of them as college students, potentially increasing their confidence and helping them to navigate the transition
· The number of dual enrollment/credit hours that a student may take is governed by high school course load and courses desired from Co-Lin.
