As they begin to think about choosing a college and a career path, some high school students may find themselves wanting more out of their education experience than traditional high school courses can provide. If you’re looking to get a head start when it comes to earning college credits, or simply want to explore more challenging subjects that aren’t taught in a traditional high school environment, dual enrollment courses can be the ideal solution.
What Are Dual Enrollment Courses?
Dual enrollment gives high school students the opportunity to earn college credits and take college-level courses before they receive their high school diploma. Beyond providing a more challenging set of courses to prepare them for life after high school, dual enrollment courses offer a range of additional benefits, including:
● Helping college students earn their degrees sooner due to getting a head start on earning college credits
● Saving students money in the long run due to their shorter stay at a university
● Giving high school students the opportunity to decide their career path early to help them land their dream job quickly
Taking Dual Enrollment Courses Online
While dual enrollment courses typically take place on college campuses, taking them online provides a wide range of benefits. High school students who are already enrolled in an online high school program -- like Sinousa Virtual High School (SVHS) -- can take advantage of online dual enrollment courses, allowing them to learn at their own pace and on their schedule.
By taking dual enrollment courses online, students don’t have to spend time and money commuting to a campus, and can earn college credits from the comfort of their own homes.
Benefits for International Students
Online dual enrollment is perfect for international students who aren’t in the U.S. but want to earn an American education. Online dual enrollment provides the same benefits for international students as it does for American students, allowing them to earn college credits at an American university while they earn a high school diploma.
Many foreign students from around the world choose online courses as they can be taken from anywhere and provide a head start on American college credits. With online dual enrollment provided by Sinousa Virtual High School, international students have access to:
● An online program tailored to your individual education level
