What Is Dual Enrollment?
    • An exciting partnership between Escondido High School and Palomar Community College that allows our high school students to attend a college class on our EHS campus
    • Dual enrollment allows students to earn ‘dual credit’.  ‘Dual credit’ means students can earn academic credits at two institutions -- their high school and a college or university that participates in dual enrollment programs.
Why Should I Consider Dual Enrollment?
There are several reasons why high school students should work with their parents and school to participate in dual enrollment programs. These benefits include:
      • Experiencing college courses with the support of high school teachers.
      • Accelerate college completion, which may reduce total student debt for college graduates.
      • Save money on tuition costs, which may reduce total student debt for college graduates.
      • The dual enrollment classes high school students take may transfer to higher education institutions, depending upon the school
Where Is Dual Enrollment Offered?
Currently Escondido High School and Orange Glen High School in the EUHSD are offering dual enrollment opportunities for students.  Please contact your counselor for more information.
