Get Ahead! Earn College Credit in High School
What is Dual Enrollment?
The Dual Enrollment Program allows high school students the opportunity to earn high school and college credit simultaneously, while in their high school classroom.
Students can pursue a challenging academic curriculum that will complement the high school educational experience.
The University of Toledo is building partnerships with high school districts to provide high-quality coursework and instruction in the high-demand areas of advanced mathematics, natural science, foreign language and other disciplines. Your high school teacher becomes your college instructor.
High School students can earn college credit at a fraction of the cost.
Qualifying high school students may enroll in a dual enrollment course in a participating school. The University of Toledo establishes qualifications for dual enrollment courses and the partnering high school will determine if a student is eligible to participate.
