Dual Enrollment

  • Dual Enrollment allows high school students to take college classes while still enrolled in high school. These classes count for both high school and college credit. High school students who complete dual enrollment classes generally take fewer classes in college and save money on total college costs. MUSD partners with Central Arizona College (CAC) to provide dual enrollment opportunities for students. To earn college credit, students must pass a dual enrollment class with a C or better. The grade earned will be part of the student’s college academic record. 

    CTE students who complete dual enrollment classes may also be able to enter the workforce sooner. 

    Research shows that students who participate in dual enrollment programs are more likely to graduate from high school, enroll in college, enroll full-time in college, earn higher grades, and graduate from college. They are also more likely to obtain a Bachelor’s degree than an Associate’s degree or certificate. [include source/reference]
