FREE college classes for High School students!

Are you interested in getting a head start taking college classes during high school? Do you want to expand your educational opportunities right now?

Juniors and seniors are eligible for dual enrollment classes through Western Wyoming Community College (WWCC).

Dual enrollment credit is awarded to students who complete college-level courses either online or in traditional college classes. Courses are taught by college instructors, instruction is at a college pace, and courses are offered outside of the regular school day.

Dual enrollment students have one class period of their school day dedicated to working on each college course at the LSRV Ed Center.

Dual enrollment college courses are meant to be a step between high school and college. This bridge between high school and college helps teach students time management and additional responsibility while still having a structured support system in place. Additionally, this opportunity allows students to learn and practice the real-life skill of having different expectations in different environments and attending courses in different buildings. 

Students will also obtain a WWCC student ID card, which allows them access to events on the main WWCC campus, as well as many discounts at various locations. 

Benefits of Dual and Concurrent Enrollment

  • Students earn both high school and college credit.
  • Counts as one elective credit or core class towards high school graduation.
  • High school students who take college courses subsequently perform better in college than those with no history of dual enrollment course taking.
  • Students who earned college credits in dual enrollment and similar programs before high school graduation had a lower average time to degree – 4.25 years . . . 4.65 years.
  • Reduces the cost of college to the student and their family.
  • Career and technical students have documented skills to offer their employer and a head start on further training.

What will it cost?

Dual and concurrent credit courses should have no cost to students or their families.

The CCSD#1 BOCHES & CCSD#1 Boards pay for tuition, fees and books for dual credit courses. Continued enrollment depends on the student receiving a minimum GPA of 2.0 in each class and completion of all enrolled courses.
