WHAT IS DUAL ENROLLMENT?
 

Currently, Bassett High School has a partnership with Mount San Antonio Community college. 

Dual enrollment, or concurrent enrollment as it is also known, is the practice of allowing a student to be enrolled in two academic institutions at once. Usually, this involves a high school and a college. The credits apply both to high school diploma requirements and college graduation requisites. For high school students interested in more advanced courses or wanting to get a “jump on” college requirements, dual enrollment programs may provide a good answer.

 
WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR DUAL ENROLLMENT?
 
  • Students must be at least 16 years old
  • Meet all course prerequisites
  • Attend all classes every day
  •  They must be high school sophomores, juniors or seniors and they have to maintain a 2.0 or higher
  • They must score high on initial placement exams and demonstrate by their performance in regular high school classes that they can succeed in college classes
  • Students need permission from parents or guardians and the high school principal or guidance counselor to take the classes
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DUAL ENROLLMENT?
 
  • The programs make transition from high school to college smoother. 
  • Finish College Faster- earn college credit while in high school 
  • Same money- free classes and books
  • Students enrolled in dual programs who are not in advanced placement can demonstrate, on their transcripts, the ability to handle a complex course load.
  • Dual-enrollment students have access to more courses than their high schools may offer.
  • Credits not only apply to high school diploma requirements but may be applied toward college graduation.
