Taking a college-level course while in high school is often referred to as “Dual Enrollment.”
Dual Enrollment enables high school students (usually 10th, 11th and 12th graders) to enroll in college courses for credit prior to high school graduation. College credits earned through Dual Enrollment may be applied towards high school and college though programs that are different at each college and within each state. Make sure to approve your plans for taking a “Dual Enrollment” course with your high school before you begin the course.
