Dual Enrollment


Bringing K-12, Industry, and Higher Education Together for Student Success. The Dual Enrollment Program at Reedley College allows qualified high school students to earn college and high school credits at the same time while still attending High School.

Dual Enrollment allows the Community College campus to form a partnership with local K-12 districts that enables high school students (9th to 12th) to take a college class at their high school for college credit. The high school student will be awarded both college credits and high school credit for the single course. Students are eligible for Dual Enrollment provided they complete the admission application online and have approval from the high school principal or their designee.

What are the advantages of dual enrollment for a student?

  • The student that has been identified to take a Dual Enrollment class will have the opportunity to take advantage of all the benefits of such class. Upon successful completion of the class, the student, will receive the following benefits:
  • In some cases, the student may be able to attain an associate’s degree shortly before or after their high school graduation.
  • Participation in Dual Enrollment may ease the transition from high school to college by giving students a sense of what college academics are like.
  • Dual Enrollment is a cost-efficient way for students to accumulate college credits because courses are paid for and taken through the local high school.
