Dual enrollment gives you an idea of what full-time college coursework will be like, says ecampustours.com. By trying out a few classes while still in high school, you can get used to the academic environment before you leave the comfort and support of home.
You may be able to take classes that aren’t offered at your high school.
College courses can give you a closer look at your academic interest.
According to collegeboard.com, most students change their majors at least once. Taking a college class as a high school senior can help your child find his or her area of interest before the pressure is on to declare a major.
If you didn’t qualify to take AP courses, or if those courses weren’t available at your high school, taking a college-level class will help you demonstrate the ability to handle more difficult coursework, according to ecampustours.com. This ability is something every college admissions officer wants to see.
Due to the large number of online and virtual classes offered by many schools, dual-enrollment courses may be conducted right at your high school, says ecampustours.com. Ask your guidance counselor about dual-enrollment options at Tusculum College.
Perhaps the biggest benefit of dual enrollment is that you may start accumulating college credits, helping you graduate on time or even early.
