If you could earn college credit while you're still in high school, why wouldn't you? That's exactly what Piedmont Technical College's Dual Enrollment program allows students to do.
Unlike other advanced credit programs in which your college credits depend on how well you take a test, Dual Enrollment students can be sure their work will count toward their studies when they're ready to apply to college. Hundreds of high school and home school students all over the region are already taking advantage of the program to jumpstart their college careers.
We've put together the following list of Frequently Asked Questions to help you further understand our Dual Enrollment offerings. If you don't find what you're looking for, don't hesitate to contact us at 864-941-8352.
- Who is eligible?
Any high school rising junior or senior can apply.
- What classes are offered?
Course offerings are determined by the College and the school you attend. Typically, a wide range of general education courses are offered: from English and History, to Macroeconomics and Trigonometry.
- Will my credits transfer?
- Is it right for everyone?
Before applying, you should understand that the Dual Enrollment Program is an opportunity to take courses at the college level, so the amount of work necessary to succeed is usually much greater than in high school courses. Because dual enrollment courses become part of a permanent college transcript, you must commit to doing the work required.
