Dual enrollment provides an opportunity for qualified Eastern Shore high school students to enhance their education by enrolling early in college courses.
ESCC’s dual enrollment program serves students with six public and private school partners, i.e., Accomack County Public Schools, Northampton County Public Schools, and Broadwater Academy.
Students can earn high school and college credit simultaneously while having the support and encouragement of both high school and college counselors and faculty. As much as a year of college credit can be earned before high school graduation.
All dual enrollment courses are taught at the college level by appropriately credentialed faculty.
Students must pass the college entrance tests to qualify for English, math and advanced college courses. The credit earned may be for an ESCC degree or transfer to the college of choice.
During high school, students may take up to two college courses each semester through the early admission program; credit will be held until graduation from high school.
Courses are available on a space-available basis. If seats are limited, highest priority is given to seniors.
Interested students should contact their high school guidance counselors or ESCC Career Coaches to discuss career interests and possible programs of study.
