Dual enrollment is a plan that allows high school juniors and seniors (with some exceptions) to meet the requirements for high school graduation while simultaneously earning *college credit. Most dual enrollment students are served by the division-wide plan with Reynolds Community College, ECPI University, and John Tyler Community College. Students participating in the High Tech Academy at Highland Springs Technical Center receive dual credits from Virginia Commonwealth University. In order to participate in dual enrollment courses, students are recommended by their high school principal or school counselor and have permission from their parents. Students must meet course prerequisites and may have to take and pass a college-readiness placement test. If a student elects to take a dual enrollment class, there will be a $50 fee for each course starting fall of 2019. More information may be acquired from the school counseling office.
Course offerings have been designed to meet the needs of students in planning their programs of study. Decisions depend on student enrollment and the availability of faculty, facilities, and financial resources. In the event that a course cannot be offered, the student may, however, have the option to take a concurrent course at the college location. Dual enrollment course offerings are subject to agreement between Henrico County and the respective colleges.
Note: Dual enrollment courses are awarded weighted credit; students should carefully read each course description.
*Students should consult college catalogs about the transfer of college credit between colleges and universities because policies may vary.
