About the Program
The Dual Enrollment Program is a cooperative program between Monroe Community College and area school districts and BOCES that provides the opportunity for high school students to enroll in MCC courses offered at their high school. Student in these courses earn credit toward high school graduation as well as receive official college credit.
This is an exceptional opportunity to experience college coursework and earn college credits while completingthe requirements for a high school diploma. Dual Enrollment courses are taught by high school teachers that have been certified by MCC to teach the course. The high school teacher works directly with an MCC professor in developing the curriculum for the course. These courses will have the same requirements as those offered on-campus at MCC and receive the same college credit. Upon completion of the course, Dual Enrollment students will receive a grade report from MCC which reflects the course, credits, and grade on the student’s official MCC transcript. The student can request an official MCC transcript at any time, at no cost.
