Dual Enrollment allows high school students to take college classes that apply toward high school and college graduation requirements. Dual Enrollment students receive free college tuition and free textbooks. Most student fees are waived.

Students may take a single Dual Enrollment course, attend college full-time at any SFSC campus, or take courses available at their high schools. Many Dual Enrollment students are able to complete vocational training programs and sometimes associate degree programs by the time they graduate from high school.

Consult the Dual Enrollment Parent/Student Guide for more information and the complete list of college classes.

To participate in Dual Enrollment, contact your high school guidance counselor. Home schooled students should discuss their options with SFSC’s admissions coordinator. Make appointments by calling 784-7416.
