Dual Enrollment

 

Providing an edge for high school students ...

The Dual Enrollment Program is operated under the guidelines of Alabama State Board of Education Policy 801.03 which allows eligible high school students to earn both high school and college credit. College courses count toward high school graduation credits and the courses remain as a part of the student's regular transcript. When the student graduates from high school, college credits earned at LBWCC through this program are trans­ferable to other public colleges and universities in Alabama through the State Transfer and Articulation Reporting System (STARS). The STARS web site is very informative regarding courses needed to complete one's major. The link to this site is located at the bottom of this page. Students planning to attend private or out-of-state colleges and universities should check with those admissions offices to determine their poli­cies relative to dual enrollment and dual credit.
 
The following courses and high school equivalencies represent possible dual enrollment options. Six semester credit hours at the postsecondary level typically equal one credit (Carnegie unit) at the high school level in the same or related subject. Each participating school system has the final authority on equivalencies.
