• Dual Enrollment (High School + College Credit)

      What Is Dual Enrollment?

      Dual enrollment is an arrangement that allows high school students to take college classes at their high schools before, during, or after the school day. Students get credit for both a high school course and the college course—that’s why it’s called dual enrollment.

      As a high school student, you can take college courses with your high school peers, explore different areas of study, start building your college transcript, and save money (tuition is FREE for dual enrollment students). Unlike AP courses, no exams outside of class are needed to receive college credit, just earn a passing grade in the course.   

      Dual enrollment is for everyone, not just AP-track students! You can learn more by watching this short video.

      Currently, MiraCosta offers dual enrollment at Oceanside Unified School District, Carlsbad Unified School District, and San Dieguito Union High School District. View the current Dual Enrollment Class Schedule.
