High School Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment provides an opportunity for qualified high school students to earn college credit while working towards their high school diploma. High school credit may or may not be granted according to the discretion of the participating student's high school. Dual enrollment affords students educational advancement in specific areas where unusual ability and interest are displayed, especially in courses and academic areas not available in the student's high school. Note: Some colleges/universities will not accept college credit for college courses used to meet high school graduation requirements.

Students are responsible for registering for their classes. This is not done by LCC or the student's high school. Students are also responsible for dropping unwanted classes and being aware of the refund deadlines.
Do not depend on being dropped for non-payment or non-attendance to avoid outstanding balances or failing grades.
