Dual/Concurrent Enrollment




Dual Enrollment Vs. Concurrent Enrollment - What's the Difference? 



Dual Enrollment: 


Dual Enrollment courses are part of an established partnership between the high school and college, where the student is enrolled in a course that counts simultaneously for high school and college credit. These courses are offered on the high school campus, exclusively for high school students.


Concurrent Enrollment:


HBUHSD students can take college courses as Concurrent Enrollment.  These classes will have college (non-high-school) students in them as well, and are usually offered on the college campus or online. Students receive credit on their college transcript, wherever they take that course. 


If HBUHSD students choose and take one of the courses on the special approved list (see Page 2 of the flyer found here), at Golden West College, they will also receive high school credit posted to their high school transcript. Note that students may only enroll into courses for their corresponding grade level, listed in the flyer linked above.


*Note for Seniors: We do not allow seniors to replace high school classes with the corresponding college course in their final/8th semester of high school.
