Spartan Scholars Dual Enrollment Program

The Spartan Scholars Dual Enrollment Program partners with area school districts to offer high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to earn college credit while completing their high school requirements. The program is designed to encourage a broader range of students to experience postsecondary education by allowing the student to concurrently enroll in postsecondary courses and to receive both secondary and postsecondary credit for the coursework at a reduced cost to the student.
