Pros and Cons of Dual Enrollment Students can save on college costs by earning dual-enrollment credits in high school. High school students who complete dual-enrollment classes generally need to take fewer classes in college. Dual-enrollment students are also more likely to attend and graduate from college.

Dual-enrollment classes enable high school students to take classes at a local college-and potentially earn college credit. There are a number of benefits to dual-enrollment programs. Earning college credit while still in high school sounds like a dream for many students.

Here are some more of the pros and cons of dual enrollment to think about before getting started. Additional Pros of Dual Enrollment. 1. It is cheaper that college tuition.

Dual enrollment is one of the most affordable ways for students to earn college credits. The per-credit hour for some concurrent programs is even nothing. Why might dual enrollment be a not-so-great idea?

1) Generally, dual enrollment courses are not considered to be as rigorous as Advanced Placement (AP) courses. Admissions counselors will evaluate your transcript by looking at how you did in the courses you took given the context of what resources were available to you at your high school.

Pros and Cons of Dual Enrollment: Pros of Dual Enrollment: There are multiple reasons for your teen to begin college courses now rather than waiting until after high school. Take a look at all of these amazing benefits: Dual enrollment maximizes efficiency. A young adult who earns an. More and more high schools are offering this than ever before and more students are taking advantage of the opportunity to earn some college credits.

PROS: Dual enrollment could potentially save you thousands in tuition costs since most dual classes are significantly cheaper per-credit-hour than at a traditional college. I keep wondering what the word “Dual Enrollment or Dual Credit” means. Could it mean, enrolling in two college degrees at a time or enrolling in two colleges simultaneously?

In this article, I will explain everything you need to know about Dual Enrollment, classes, Eligibility status, funding, and the pros and cons. Dual-enrollment programs have been linked to higher high school graduation rates and increase the likelihood that students will enroll in an institution of higher education. In addition, students who completed dual-enrollment programs in high school tended to have higher cumulative GPAs during their first three years in college. Dual enrollment courses will factor into the college GPA. The student should be ready for demanding classes and coursework.

Don’t risk dragging down a college GPA just because dual enrollment seems like a novel idea. Failing a dual enrollment course may mean the student doesn’t graduate on time from high school.

  • This video is so helpful! Thank you! I am a highschool and college freshman and I am doing dual enrollment. I have gotten 15 college credits already and it raised my high school GPA hugmunusly. It’s also FREE so it’s even better.

  • Great video and also not every high school student goes to a college to do dual enrollment. In my high school, we have a classroom where if you are taking dual enrollment classes that’s the classroom you go to, to take your class. Some teachers at my school who teach high school also teach dual enrollment classes. I’m very grateful for this because I don’t have to drive 30 minutes away to get to my college and plus I don’t have to go back and forth because I have to drive my brother to school this year. Just thought I’d point that out that not everyone has to travel to a different school when they are taking dual enrollment.

  • I started dual enrollment in my sophomore year. I can say it’s much easier than some Ap classes.However I have my college class everyday.Dual Enrollment is worth it guysss!!

  • I wasn’t told about when orientation is or who’s in charge and apparently it’s been changed this year cause of COVID. I received NO emails only found out through a friend.

  • hey, yeah i have a question, if i do duel enrollment does that mean it is possible to get an assocsiates degree the same time i get a high school diploma

  • thank u so much for this video!!! also had a question, i applied for part time DE but the more i think about it, the more i realize that full time sounds much more reliable for me and i’m a junior. Is there a possibility i can change part time to full time?

  • hi i have a question please answer! i’m not completely sure if i’m going in state but woudl it work if i did in state for 2 years and transferred to one out of state but would that waste the money that you pay for dual credit?? or is the credit going to go towards the first year of going to college?

  • Best video so far Lexi… my son wants to do dual enrollment so this is a great place to start!!! Would love to see more on this topic��

  • Thank you, my son and I are considering dual enrollment and your video was very helpful!
    (Oh, also, dual enrollment costs vary by state and institution. If you wanted to dual enroll at a private university in GA, it would still cost money. In MO, where we live, the community colleges charge half price for dual enrollment.)

  • I’m in a program at my school that makes us take 2 AP Maths and 2 AP Sciences. To be honest I’m not about that, I’m really considering dropping out of this program and just dialing enrolling.

  • Hi there, this school year I’m doing Dual Enrollment and I will be a soft-more as well and your video really helped me. I’m doing Dual Enrollment Pre-Calc and I’m really excited. Thank you!❤️

  • How would you rate the rigor of AP v DE?

    I made a post on reddit a few days ago and was redirected here.

    I’m trying to get to an Ivy League/Stanford and I’ve taken around 6 AP and scored 4s and 5s, but now I’m looking to switch over to full time DE for my senior year (senioritis lol). What do you think I should do? Will top colleges see me as being lazy or will they see it as rigorous?

  • Does dual enrollment lessen the amount of time you take to get your degree? I’m wanting to get a bachelors degree in biology but I want to graduate earlier

  • the college that offers dual for my county is RIGHT next to my high school, like 5 minutes walking lmfao. but cause of covid, transportation isn’t a problem to me. amazing video girl!

  • I’m going to be a senior next year and I wish I knew about this program sooner, is it still worth it to get a year’s head start on my AA or should I just finish out high school by taking more AP?

  • Dual enrollment is growing so quickly because it’s largely homeschoolers who are choosing to go to college early this way. Very common, in fact. In Texas, you can choose when to graduate your homeschooled student and start college, or when to begin dual enrollment. It ism’t that minorites can’t participate because colleges offer incentives aimed at those populations. It’s just that some people are more interested in going. Mostly those outside the public school system.

  • Hi! Quick question, I’ve taken a bunncccchhh of dual enrollment classes, but my dream college won’t let me graduate early. Is it still worth it?

  • Was the Accuplacer test difficult? I’m so nervous about starting the courses but i’m even more worried about the test �� I don’t know how it is or what to expect

  • hey i want to start dual enrollment next year and i want to ask you how much dualenrollment raises your gpa and if you have it during school time how many hours do you put it and will a school let you take 4 or 5 courses

  • do you still go to your regular high school classes for dual enrollment? or it is only the dual enrollment classes you are taking? and also how many classes do you need to take?

  • where do you even start is my biggest question. Like do u just enroll to the dual classes and not say anything to ur teachers at ur regular hs? I also heard u can graduate early with these classes so how would that all work

  • The only reason I will take AP classes is so I don’t have to pass the test at the end. Because if I take honors than i have to pass the EOC because it’s 70% of my final grade

  • I just found your channel and I’m so glad I did! Your channel is amazing! I subscribed and liked this video �� Hope you can do the same ❤️

  • Really good video. Just a quick insight, some high schools offer dual enrollment classes taught by high school teachers (this way no one has to leave the high school)!

  • I took dual enrollment for some math courses and I had a great experience! I would highly recommend dual enrolling for math to any students who have taken the AP Calc BC Exam!

  • This was so helpful and amazing… I started taking dual enrollment classes since freshman year and I am now going into junior year with 22 college credits. However I was in a dilemma this year because I wasn’t sure If i wanted to take more ap classes or dual. I’ve decided that dual enrollment is the best choice for me! Thnk you

  • When you take the dual enrollment classes are you with other kids who are also dual enrolling? Or are you just thrown into college classes?

  • I love dual enrollment. Would recommend. By me, dual is mistaken for ”smart” students, only; in reality, it is full of reasonably hard-working students.

  • Great Video! Keep it going, you are amazing! Try to lower the music, your voice sounds pretty low with high music. Apart from that excellent vid!

  • 1:50 I think it depends on the school. I’m a 15 year old dual enrollment student and my parents have very busy schedules, so thankfully my school offers a bus to take the DE students to the college campus.

  • You are a GODSEND thank you SO much. I just got accepted the my college for DE (I’ll be a junior this year) I haven’t been able to find any videos on this I think I’ve just been searching all the wrong stuff. This was so helpful thank youuuu!!
