What is dual enrollment?
Dual enrollment allows high school students to earn college credits while still being enrolled in high school. Dual enrollment also provides students with the opportunity to build academic confidence. Any eligible student may obtain dual enrollment credit at Alabama State University. However, dual credit (students earn both high school and college credit simultaneously) is restricted to high schools that have a signed agreement with Alabama State University.
