Simply put, students are taking college classes during high school. Most students take courses at Carroll Community College, but some students attend other area colleges. The requirements are the same as those for an internship.
2) How do the credits work?
Students can only take classes that award college credit; which means no remedial courses. A 3-credit college course earns a ½ credit of high school elective credit.
3) Can I participate in an internship and concurrent enrollment?
Yes, some students are able to do both.
4) I am interested, what should I do?
Let your School Counselor and the Career Coordinator know about your interest. For dual enrollment, students will need to take the college placement test to see if their academic preparation matches the college’s expectation. After students have received placement test scores, bring them to the Career Coordinator. The Career Coordinator will verify the scores and the counselor will adjust the student schedule and begin the paperwork process. All paperwork must be completed FOUR WEEKS before each semester.
