Dual Enrollment or Advanced Placement?
Dual enrollment and advanced placement courses are both good options for students. The difference is dual enrollment students receive a grade and credit for the work performed throughout the year. These credits usually transfer to the student’s college of choice as direct course equivalents.
Advanced Placement classes require students to pass the AP test to earn college credit. Credit is awarded solely on the students’ performance on this one exam and may transfer to college only as an elective credit.
