Dual Enrollment

The Dual Enrollment program (formerly known as Move On When Ready) is specifically designed to provide high school  (including home-schooled students) with access to a number of opportunities for enhancing their high school curriculum and earning college credit before high school graduation. Some students are even able to earn an associate degree while in high school! Tuition and fees are covered through the program and textbooks are loaned to the student. Course specific fees, such as a science lab fee, must be paid by the student.


Home-Schooled Students need to contact the Dual Enrollment Coordinator at dualenroll@highlands.edu for additional requirement information. These applicants will be evaluated based on the academic admissions requirements of a home school and/or non-accredited high school student.
