Dual credit courses are university classes taught by a qualified, approved high school teacher in the high school classroom.
Dual enrollment courses are either team-taught between a high school teacher and a university instructor or exclusively by the university instructor.
Students are enrolled in the same on-campus or online section with regular university students. Options include most 100 and 200 level courses.
“Numerous rigorous, multiinstitution and statewide quantitative research studies in more than a dozen states have shown that dual enrollment and early college high schools increase high school graduation rates, improve college readiness, and provide gains in college access, persistence, and completion for a diverse group of students.” (Quote from “How to Scale College in High School” February 2017 Report, College in High School Alliance)
