What is Dual Enrollment?
Dual Enrollment Delivery Methods & Credit Options
Dual Enrollment is the broad term for opportunities for high school students to take college courses while still in high school.
Students take Dual Enrollment courses for either Dual Credit or College Credit Only. Dual Credit courses award high school and college credit simultaneously for the same course. College Credit Only courses award college credit (and not high school credit) for a college course.
Montana University System colleges and universities offer Dual Enrollement courses via two delivery models: Early College and Concurrent Enrollment.
Early College courses are standard college classes that are open to high school students and offered on a college campus or online for Dual Credit or College Credit Only.
Concurrent Enrollment Courses are college courses taught at a high school to a class of high school students by a qualified high school teacher for Dual Credit.
