Panelists discussed their Dual Enrollment experiences during Early College Bootcamp earlier this year. High school students, faculty, staff, administrators and family members will have the chance to learn more about the Dual Enrollment program during "Your DE Journey," a virtual information session on Wednesday, Dec. 7.

Montgomery County Community College will be hosting virtual information session on  Dual Enrollment opportunities. It is open to high school students, faculty, staff, administrators and family members.

The college will host “Your DE Journey,” on Wednesday, Dec. 7 with two, one-hour online sessions scheduled at noon and 6 PM.

This event will include information about Early College opportunities, including Dual Enrollment classes at the college and dual credit courses at the high school.

The session will include a preview of what the journey can look like after graduation. Additionally, it will feature a parent/student panel discussion about their journey through Dual Enrollment.

“This is something we started last spring,” said Christine Morris, Administrative Director of Educational Partnerships.

“This event is a great opportunity to share information about Dual Enrollment and what the journey looks like for students,” she said.

There will also be information for students in charter, technical or cyber charter schools about what dual enrollment classes are available for a certificate or associate’s degree at the college.

Students 15 years old or older, can take campus-based or online college classes and earn undergraduate credits from MCCC. These credits can be transferred to a four-year college or university; however, students should contact their intended college’s Admissions Office to ensure that their credits transfer completely.

Dual Enrollment classes are offered in the evenings, on weekends and during the summer. For daytime classes, students should check with their high school to see if they can adjust their schedule to fit in a college course.

Dual Enrollment gives high school students early exposure, preparation and access to college level courses that are transferable to other colleges and universities. In addition, by earning an associate’s degree from MCCC, students can save as much as $30,000 in tuition before transferring to a four-year institution.

Similarly, according to a study by the American Institutes for Research, college enrollment rates after graduation for Early College students were significantly higher at 63.5 percent versus 24.3 percent for traditional students.

The online event is free and open to the public. To register, visit
