What is dual-credit and how can my student take advantage of it?

Dual-credit (also called dual enrollment) is a unique program for upperclassmen at DAHS in which they receive high school and college credit at the same time. Classes are taught through an accredited university and given either online or at a local college campus. While parents/guardians are responsible for the cost of these courses, they are typically provided to high school students at a substantial discount. Students must meet all DAHS and college criteria to apply. Make an appointment with your assigned counselor to learn more.
