Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment allows high-achieving students meet the requirements for high school graduation while simultaneously earning college credit, and saves students time and money when they transfer to a college or university to complete their college degree.

What are the advantages of dual enrollment?
  • You save money. Dual Enrollment students pay no more than 20% of the cost of the college tuition and fees if they are students in one of the Lee, Scott, Wise, Dickenson, or City of Norton public schools.
  • You save time. Dual Enrollment classes can reduce the amount of time it takes to complete a college degree or certificate.

What if my goal is to get a bachelor's degree at a four-year college or university?
MECC offers Dual Enrollment credit for college general education courses, which are required for all two-year and four-year degrees. These Dual Enrollment courses begin your Associate of Arts and Sciences degree at MECC or you can transfer directly to a four-year college or university.

What if my goal is to get a one-year certificate or two-year degree in a career technical field and then get a job?
MECC offers Dual Enrollment credit for career technical courses. These Dual Enrollment courses begin your Certificate or Associate of Applied Sciences degree at MECC.
